Shutting down the installation: Assertion 'bus' failed at src/systemctl.c:1654, function start_special().
Last modified: 2012-10-22 11:17:51 EDT
Description of problem:
At the end of installation on s390x, anaconda doesn't shutdown system.
After clicking on Shutdown button, following message is displayed on terminal:
Assertion 'bus' failed at src/systemctl.c:1654, function start_special(). Aborting.
Connection to 10.16.105.198 closed.
But the system is still running - it means I can login via ssh.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. proceed through the installation process
2. at the finish screen, click on "Shutdown"
System doesn't shut down, assertion message on terminal
system should shut down (or reboot)
Is systemd running?

Attaching list of processes before clicking on "Shutdown" button - systemd is not running.
This is because anaconda's using systemd on all platforms now except s390, where we're still using our own init. However, we are universally trying to use systemctl to reboot the machine which of course won't work on a system where systemd isn't running.
A short term fix would be to modify the bottom of the anaconda script to do something different on s390. I'd be happy to review patches that do that. The real fix would be to ditch linuxrc.s390 and use loader and systemd like every other platform.
Are you still seeing this with F18? There's no more linuxrc.s390, and a lot of work has gone into our systemd support.
I haven't seen this message for ages, so closing this bug as fixed.
