reproduced on f16-alpha-rc5, the it works well with minimal install
reproduced on f16-beta-tc2
reproduced on f16-beta-rc1
why was this not proposed as a blocker bug? it seems to be one according to the alpha criteria.
Reproduced with F16 Beta RC1 i686. Minimal install works, but default install doesn't boot. Proposing as blocker.
"In most cases (see Blocker_Bug_FAQ), a system installed according to any of the above criteria (or the appropriate Beta or Final criteria, when applying this criterion to those releases) must boot to the 'firstboot' utility on the first boot after installation, without unintended user intervention, unless the user explicitly chooses to boot in non-graphical mode. This includes correctly accessing any encrypted partitions when the correct passphrase is supplied. The firstboot utility must be able to create a working user account."

kamil: the other criterion to cite is "The installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces " (Alpha) - the two together make this blocker, I think.

boot messages with systemd debug
adamw: Well, it _completed_ the installation, it just doesn't boot afterwards :-) I wasn't sure whether it covers that or not.
Attaching logs with systemd.log_level=debug. Heavy output warning!
I think this is duplicate of bug #737118
Can you please retest with the latest release?

I just skimmed through the comments, but this bug seems to be happening also for runlevel 5, not just 3.

Latest release of anaconda? In that case we will probably have to wait for F16 Beta RC2.
In the screenshot, one of the last messages is running /usr/bin/setup. That is run only in text-mode. So I suspect it's the same problem.
No need for latest anaconda, if what I'm saying is right, latest firstboot is enough, that is firstboot-16.4-1
Do we have some compose ready that would include firstboot-16.4-1?
I think you don't need a new compose, you just need a repo with the new firstboot package. But I'm not sure if it is anywhere yet.
The status on fedora updates is still pending...
yeah, you only need a repo for the installer with firstboot in it. the new firstboot was just pushed to testing, so just installing with updates-testing selected might be enough if your mirror is up to date. otherwise, you can put a side repo up and point anaconda at it.

I have installed system over VNC using updates-testing including firstboot-16.4-1. The system boots. However, it boots only to runlevel 3 and I had to issue "init 5" to see firstboot and user session afterwards.
I think this bug can be closed as fixed and I'll file a separate bug report about the wrong default runlevel.
