As discussed on IRC. Just creating this bug so that we can track this and i can refer to a bug id.
the assert is:
plymouthd: ply-keyboard.c:384: ply_keyboard_watch_for_input: Assertion `keyboard != ((void *)0)' failed.
I guess this may now be closed, given that it is fixed in git.
well, let's get it into rawhide first
*** Bug 618345 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I built a git snapshot into rawhide a few days ago.
