firstboot ERROR: X Server failed to start
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/firstboot/xfronted.py" line 87, in start

But GUI (gdm and gnome is working fine on my machine.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-10-02 14:11:40 EDT
I believe this is due to a known Xorg VT switching crash.
Comment 5 Will Woods 2009-10-02 14:12:05 EDT
Works OK here on a KVM-based x86_64 install of the F12 Beta test compose. Same
firstboot/initscripts/anaconda version.

So it's not happening for *every* install, anyway.
Comment 6 Robert Laverick 2009-10-04 06:07:22 EDT
I get this error using rawhide nightly 20091001.15 i386

same error output as S A Alam reported

Smolt: http://www.smolts.org/client/show/pub_a06b74a6-bd35-4178-87e7-ca58c6c533b4

I did the install with use entire drive and no encryption.

plymouthd is blowing an assertion, must be a plymouth problem.  reassigning
Comment 8 Jesse Keating 2009-10-05 15:54:57 EDT
Not sure this is plymouthd, at least I can successfully get a segfault from X every time I vt switch and switch back.  Is plymouth/firstboot/etc doing any vt switching?

Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-10-05 16:08:22 EDT
ah there are two bugs here, i'll clone the plymouth one off, since it's less blocker-y
Comment 10 Jesse Keating 2009-10-05 19:07:32 EDT
ati build done and tagged.  Just needs a retest.
Comment 11 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-10-07 18:32:51 EDT
Talked to Jesse on IRC.  We debugged and this actually needed plymouth fixes as well...

Fixed in  plymouth-0.8.0-0.2009.29.09.6.fc12
Comment 12 A S Alam 2009-10-07 21:39:10 EDT
I tried plymouth-0.8.0-0.2009.29.09.6.fc12 with rawhide (installed with single user mode), firstboot is working. wait for build available in rawhide
Comment 13 Jesse Keating 2009-10-08 01:43:48 EDT
