Description Adam Williamson 2022-09-02 16:14:54 UTC
In openQA testing, Workstation live images built with evolution-data-server-3.45.3 - both evolution-data-server-3.45.3-1.fc37 from the F37 update FEDORA-2022-25422fd15f and evolution-data-server-3.45.3-1.fc38 from the Rawhide update FEDORA-2022-238bb8234c - boot to GNOME's "Oh no!" screen, which means some core part of GNOME failed to start.

The system logs show nothing at all, but we believe this is actually because gnome-shell is missing a dependency on gcr. Previously we were getting away with this because e-d-s is on the live image and it depended on gcr, but the new version of e-d-s does not require gcr any more. So, gnome-shell needs to add a dependency on gcr.

Proposing this as a Beta FE for logistical reasons. The update for evolution is already in the F37 queue, but will get stuck in the Beta freeze. kalev also wants to submit a mega-update for GNOME which will include a GNOME Shell build. So it's awkward to get things straight if we don't push a fix through the freeze first - we'd have to include the fixed gnome-shell in the evolution update, but then that makes it hard to also include gnome-shell in the mega-update. So we figured it'd be simplest to just push a gnome-shell build with only the added dependency through the freeze now, then the evolution update will be OK and the GNOME mega-update can have a later gnome-shell build.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2022-09-02 18:18:45 UTC
Fix confirmed in openQA testing: https://openqa.stg.fedoraproject.org/tests/2024802#dependencies - I tweaked the tests to run on stg with the gnome-shell build also included, and now the live image runs GNOME and the install tests pass.
