* booting from ISO image using F12/qemu virtual environment
After clicking on "automatic login" at the gdm screen, an error dialog occurs:
"Unable to load a failsafe session"
and the automatic login halts ... because of this error the installer can not be started, so no installs using this image can occur ...
see attached screenshot ...

error dialog that appears after gdm "automatic login" is selected
I thought I fixed this a while ago.
If you go to a vty (control-alt-f2), login as root, and do 'chown -R liveuser ~liveuser' does it then allow you to login correctly?
Yes, using your workaround I can get past the error dialog in screenshot 1, but the desktop still doesn't start properly (see attached screenshot #2) ...
hmmm ... ok, let me take comment #3 back ... after your comment #2 workaround the xfce desktop does start ... should there be an icon for the installer on the desktop?

desktop appearance after workaround
Yes, there normally should be. ;(
You can open a terminal and run 'liveinst' to run the installer.
Thanks, running liveinst in the terminal gives me a known blocking error for anaconda:
Bug 524313 - trace back "ImportError: No module named nss.nss"
my guess is that each of the F12-Snap3-liveCDs that have this version of anaconda will be affected by it ... :(
I see where the icon is missing now, I just commited a fix I think.
Hopefully tomorrows nightly compose will be fixed for these issues... if you could test it tomorrow and confirm that would be great.
Hi Kevin, will that compose show up on the Fedora Project Spins Tracker page?
If so, I'll try to hit it as soon as I can download it ...
Well, when Beta comes out or the next Snap release, yes.
I meant the nightly ones at:
However, composes have failed due to a yum bug today, and then when they do compose they don't boot due to a dracut or dmsetup bug. ;(
So, perhaps tomorrow will be a better day. ;)
The new nightlys should be fixed for this.
Can you confirm and close this bug?
Also automatic login is broken, but should be fixed tomorrow, but you can still manually select the live user and should be able to login just fine.
verified this bug is fixed using:
* liveCD booted
* automatic login completed
* installer desktop icon appeared
* install completed without errors
* rebooted successfully into post-install system
* logged in and desktop is functional
