Description Chris Murphy 2015-01-23 04:31:20 UTC
Created attachment 983172 [details]

Description of problem: After logging in, I'm met with a white screen (see attachment) with some graphics "cockpit" at the top, but no navigable interface at all.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fedora 21 Server installed and working, including cockpit.
2. fedup upgrade to Fedora 22 Server, reboot2x
3. Go to url:9090
4. login successfully, and then

Actual results:

blank page, with cockpit graphic at the top, no other elements to navigate

Expected results:

New hotness, not new brokenness.

Additional info:

The one latent problem as a result of the fedup upgrade is that openlmi and tog-pegasus are not installed and cannot be installed due to bug 1185133. Uncertain if that's related.

Comment 1 Chris Murphy 2015-01-23 04:35:40 UTC
OK, small lie. I do have navigation hidden in the far upper right corner. That pull down menu does drop down, containing language, about, account, password, privileges, and log out. When I click on each of them:

Display Language: dialog appears, no contents - nothing to select.

About Cockpit: only a partial description appears, the rest seems cut off.
"Cockpit is an advanced application with many options.
Version ."

Account Settings does nothing when clicked.

Set Password: a message "the passwords do not match" before I've typed anything, I'm not going to try to change the password here, but this is a strange message.

Log out works.

Comment 2 Chris Murphy 2015-01-24 05:14:17 UTC
Same results with a new clean Fedora 22 installation, so this problem isn't fedup related.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-02-17 21:01:36 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 22-beta by Fedora user chrismurphy using the blocker tracking app because:

 It must be possible to log in to the default Cockpit instance and use it to: View the system's logs;View the system's running services;Enrol the system to a FreeIPA or Active Directory domain.

Comment 4 Dan Mossor [danofsatx] 2015-02-23 18:05:03 UTC
Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1].

AcceptedBlocker Beta - This bug is a clear violation of the Beta criterion: "It must be possible to log in to the default Cockpit instance and use it to: View the system's logs; View the system's running services; Enrol the system to a FreeIPA or Active Directory domain."

Comment 5 Chris Murphy 2015-02-28 01:10:58 UTC
Still a problem with Alpha TC7 new installation

Comment 7 Stef Walter 2015-03-03 15:07:13 UTC
Chris, if you press Ctrl-Shift-J in your browser, and click the 'Console' tab, do you see any messages there when you load Cockpit? Could you paste them in this bug?

Comment 8 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2015-03-03 15:11:52 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

This bug is relevant on non-x86_64 architectures, and caused by the lack of a cockpit-docker package.

Comment 12 Stef Walter 2015-03-03 20:24:31 UTC
Fix here:

cockpit-0.41-1.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.

Comment 14 Chris Murphy 2015-03-04 20:25:53 UTC
Confirm clean AlphaTC7 install + cockpit-0.41-1.fc22 fixes this bug.

Further confirm passes test case:

And finally confirm that cockpit is badass (urbandic version, not google version).
