Created attachment 988667 [details]
ABRT information.

Description of problem:
Attempted to launch anaconda from the 20140204 Workstation Live image and Ananconda crashed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 20140204 Workstation live image
2. Attempt to start installation (from initial screen or from shell)
3. Anaconda fails to start.

Actual results:
Anaconda crashes.

Expected results:
Anaconda launches and completes installation.

Additional info:
This seems to be related to the selinux issues in the following bugs:
 - 1182640
 - 1185455
 - 1188888
 - 1188889

Disabling selinux allows the network to connect and anaconda to finish the install.

Comment 1 Mike Ruckman 2015-02-06 04:09:27 UTC
Proposing as a Final blocker: "There must be no SELinux denial notifications or crash notifications on boot of or during installation from a release-blocking live image, or at first login after a default install of a release-blocking desktop." -

Comment 2 David Shea 2015-02-06 07:54:24 UTC
if [ -x /usr/sbin/getenforce ]; then
    /usr/sbin/setenforce 0

is one of the first things that the liveinst script does. Is getenforce missing? Did you turn enforcing back on?

Comment 3 Mike Ruckman 2015-02-06 16:10:03 UTC
getenforce isn't missing from the image and I didn't alter anything to get this crash. Just click the install button (tried it from the DE launch popup as well as from the shortcut bar in gnome-shell).

Comment 4 Mike Ruckman 2015-02-07 05:30:10 UTC
After building an image with selinux-policy-3.13.1-110.fc22.noarch, the problem seems to be resolved. Anaconda allows a clean install with no errors.

Comment 5 David Shea 2015-02-07 07:08:08 UTC
Ok. Closing per comment 4.
