Description Robert Richter 2016-11-30 11:04:10 UTC
Description of problem:

The anaconda installer crashes with an exception if no network is present:

anaconda 25.20.8-1 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/packaging/", line 1156, in selectEnvironment
    raise NoSuchGroup(environmentid)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/ui/tui/spokes/", line 318, in _apply
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/ui/tui/spokes/", line 90, in _initialize
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/", line 862, in run
    self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/", line 251, in run, *args, **kwargs)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

anaconda 25.20.8-1, from the Fedora 25 aarch64 iso (Fedora-Server-netinst-aarch64-25-1.3.iso):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Start installation in qemu with network disabled, e.g.:

 qemu-system-aarch64 -enable-kvm -smp 8 -m 16G -cpu host -nographic -pflash flash0.img -pflash flash1.img -M virt,gic_version=3 -cdrom Fedora-Server-netinst-aarch64-25-1.3.iso -net none -hda /dev/sdb

2. The exception occurs immediately after the install shows the first text mode menu.

Actual results:


Expected results:

No exception.

Additional info:

I suspect

 4a42de7d00f7 tui: Add software group selection

the breaking commit, though not tested.

Enabling network makes the installer work.

One more detail from the log:

 Not asking for VNC because we don't have a network
