Please attach the log files from /tmp (or /var/log/anaconda on the installed system) to this bug.

Comment 2 Kyle McMartin 2014-09-09 15:13:07 UTC
hrm, the only real obvious way I can see this differing on armv7hl is if:

 618             # XXX one day this might need to account for anaconda's display      mode
 619             if ts.dbMatch("provides", 'service(graphical-login)').count() a     nd \
 620                ts.dbMatch('provides', 'xorg-x11-server-Xorg').count() and \
 621                not flags.usevnc:
 622                 # We only manipulate the ksdata.  The symlink is made later
 623                 # during the config write out.
 624        = True

i guess the question is if service(graphical-login) is provided by something installed?

Comment 3 David Shea 2014-09-09 15:16:47 UTC
The other question would be whether the installation happened graphically. If you requested text during the install, we give you text afterwards, too.

Comment 10 Paul Whalen 2014-09-09 16:39:22 UTC
the logs files attached are from a VNC install, but this also occured with text installation.

Comment 11 Kyle McMartin 2014-09-09 16:57:47 UTC
looks like both text and vnc will result in, and only the full graphical install will result in, so i guess it's expected behaviour.

Comment 12 David Shea 2014-09-09 18:35:08 UTC
vnc should get, probably. Good news! It's not arm-specific. Text mode is behaving correctly, though.

Comment 13 David Shea 2014-09-09 19:29:49 UTC
Actually, thinking about it a bit more I think I'd rather just leave things the way they are. Installing via VNC usually implies a lack of access to a real console, so installing via VNC and expecting a graphical login at the end is kind of a weird use case. Also the usevnc exception in the block of code that Kyle posted has been there for at least three Fedora releases and this is the first complaint.

Comment 14 Kyle McMartin 2014-09-09 19:30:57 UTC
indeed, i'm fine with it, as long as it's expected and consistent.

regards, kyle
