Comment 2 Martin Kolman 2018-05-10 09:41:13 UTC
Looking at anaconda.log, there is:

07:53:22,768 ERR core.util: Failed to import module docker from path /usr/share/anaconda/addons/com_redhat_docker/ks/docker.py in collect: No module named 'pyanaconda.iutil'

But I think that might not be fatal & has likely been happening for a while already.

On the other hand the isys segfault visible on the screenshot seems like the most  likely reason why the Anaconda process died.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2018-05-14 07:57:55 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 29-beta by Fedora user lnie using the blocker tracking app because:

 seems affects the basic criteria " When using a dedicated installer image, the installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces."

Comment 4 František Zatloukal 2018-05-14 22:23:07 UTC
Discussed during the 2018-05-14 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedBlocker was made as it violates the following blocker criteria:

"When using a dedicated installer image, the installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces"

Comment 5 Vendula Poncova 2018-05-15 09:46:09 UTC
The failure is caused by segfault in libxcb. The isys part is just a signal handler. Reassinging to libxcb.

Comment 6 Radek Vykydal 2018-06-06 07:03:44 UTC
This is blocking our nightly kickstart tests on rawhide.

Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2018-06-06 19:46:30 UTC
Xvnc's GLX init wasn't quite right, fixed.

Comment 8 Paul Whalen 2018-06-11 15:19:32 UTC
Verified working with compose Fedora-Rawhide-20180609.n.0

Comment 9 lnie 2018-06-25 04:55:52 UTC
