Description David Jones 2018-04-24 19:58:49 UTC
Description of problem:

After completing the install and rebooting, I get the initial setup page, where it asks my locale and time zome settings. However, the "Next" button for time zone is always grayed out, and I can't get past it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install CentOS Gnome Desktop
2. Reboot after install.
3. Try to set Time Zone

Actual results:

Can't get past time zone screen. 

Expected results:

Set time zone and complete installation. 

Additional info:

This is an offline install, as the machine is unable to be connected to the internet. 

If I try to change to a terminal, I get something like "Job waiting for Plymouth start screen - 30s/unlimited."

did you click on somewhere on the map or type in a timezone ?

Comment 3 David Jones 2018-04-24 21:54:30 UTC
I tried both several times. I also tried rebooting. I tried going back to the previous screen and turning location services on and off. Same results in all cases. 

Though doubt it's relevant, I did install in UEFI mode.

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2018-04-25 14:19:39 UTC
so to confirm, this is 7.4 ?

Comment 5 David Jones 2018-04-25 15:21:54 UTC
That's correct.
