Today, running the release validation tests for the new iso F39 beta 1.1 (Fedora-Budgie-Live-x86_64-39_Beta-1.1.iso) cannot start the installation clicking on the icons (both at desktop, and at the menu).
When I open a terminal and run the comand "liveinst" then anaconda starts correctly and I can install F39 budgie.
I tested tha last F38 respin too (F38-WORK-x86_64-LIVE-20230901.iso), and it works perfectly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start live session
2.try to install by clicking on the "install do HD" icons
anaconda GUI starts and we can go throught the installation processes as usual.

print from a journalctl -f session running when I try to install
This is what is logged at the moment I click on any of the icons "install on hard drive"

Was able to reproduce in virt-manager and live ISO on laptop. Added relevant logs from it.
Yes, also happens running usb live-iso on baremetal Acer Aspire Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM CPU
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 39-beta by Fedora user geraldosimiao using the blocker tracking app because:
If this happens on a release-blocking desktop it would surely be a blocker bug, because users can't install by clicking on the "install to hard drive" icon at desktop. But, because this is happening on Budgie desktop it can be a FE.
Issue identified in Anaconda and a MR has been submitted by halfline: https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/5171
May impact other desktops as well, but confirmed removal of exec fixes it for Budgie Desktop at the very least.
+3 in https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/1308 , marking accepted. We'll pull this in somehow if another candidate is necessary.
F39 port PR: https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/5175
As it looks like the Beta candidate we already have may be approved, let's flag this commonbugs so we can at least document the workaround for folks if we release this way.

Bug affect fedora 39 SWAY too - screenshot
Bug affect sway desktop install too (Fedora-Sway-Live-x86_64-39_Beta-1.1.iso) when we try to install by the sugested method (pressing win+d and typing liveinst) it does not install.
Workaround is the same as budgie, open a terminal (win+enter) and typing liveinst.

screenshot SWAY installation workaround
At SWAY live-session after running liveinst on the terminal, anaconda starts. Then just use win+f to go fullscreen and proceed the installation.

Great, tested the new anaconda-39.32.3-1.fc39 on both budgie beta 1.1 and sway beta 1.1 and bug is fixed on both. Anaconda now starts correctly by clicking on the icon (budgie) or following the instructions on sway desktop (win+d and typing liveinst).
I thought this anaconda upgrade could help fix this bug at SOAS too, but it didn't. Something else must be happening at SOAS installation.
FEDORA-2023-7aa321caa4 has been pushed to the Fedora 39 stable repository.
If problem still persists, please make note of it in this bug report.
