In today's Fedora 35 and Rawhide composes, all anaconda's help screens are broken - clicking any "Help" button in anaconda launches Yelp but shows an empty grey screen.
This seems to be because passing yelp the path to a local XML file (which is what anaconda does) doesn't work. If I run the same command anaconda runs from a console, I get the same blank grey screen, and some error messages:
[liveuser@localhost-live ~]$ yelp /usr/share/anaconda/help/en-US/WelcomeSpoke.xml
(yelp:3172): GLib-CRITICAL **: 18:39:31.059: g_uri_join_internal: assertion 'host != NULL || (path != '/' || path != '/')' failed
** (yelp:3172): CRITICAL **: 18:39:31.059: void webkit_web_view_load_uri(WebKitWebView*, const gchar*): assertion 'uri' failed
Proposing as a Final blocker as a violation of Final criterion "Any element in the installer interface(s) which is clearly intended to display 'help' text must do so correctly when activated" - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_35_Final_Release_Criteria#installer-help . Also proposing as a Beta FE as this seems severe enough that it would be a good idea to fix it for Beta (and it can't be fixed with an update).
Confirmed. Probably a regression from moving to GUri. Filed upstream bug: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/yelp/-/issues/182
+4 for both Beta FE and Final blocker in https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/410 , marking accepted in both cases.
Fixed in master upstream. Do you need another beta to test Fedora?
not necessarily, the fix could just be backported downstream. whichever is easiest, i guess. if no-one does anything by monday i'll backport it.
I went ahead and rolled a 41.beta2. It's a pretty big regression, and it could be hitting other early testers who didn't tag me. Thanks for catching it.
