Output of "journalctl" from the first boot (Xfce)

Description of problem:
initial-setup isn't automatically started after the installation of Fedora Rawhide. I've encountered this issue with both Xfce and Lxde spin on qemu-kvm. I'll try KDE as soon as possible.

It's a different issue from #1250409 and #1250409 where, apparently because of some racy conditions, the graphical one wasn't always displayed (but in that cases, at least the textual one popped up).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 24 Rawhide on a new qemu-kvm guest.
2. Install Fedora without adding an user account with Anaconda.
3. Reboot after installation.

Actual results:
initial-setup doesn't pop up.

Expected results:
initial-setup should start (at least the CLI interface).

Additional info:
I'm attaching some logs as attachments.

Comment 3 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2016-02-02 21:10:06 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 24-alpha by Fedora user juliuxpigface using the blocker tracking app because:

 the criterion "2.4.1 Expected installed system boot behavior" isn't fully violated here. The mechanism inside Anaconda works as expected, so we are able to create an user account during the installation.

However, since creating an account with Anaconda isn't mandatory, the boot behavior might confuse our users if we don't provide them the usual first boot utility.

At least on qemu-kvm, the initial-setup utility seems to be absent nor broken with every Desktop Spin (Workstation is the exception here, since gnome-initial-setup seems to be a different tool).

Please note that I'm unable to test what happens on bare metal. If this bug is only related to qemu-kvm, the severity doesn't IMHO justify a FE.

Screesnhot of 20160214's initial-setup

Thank you. I can confirm that the primary issue seems fixed. initial-setup starts successfully on 20160214's image.

However, the layout is totally broken; I'm attaching a screenshot. Do you think it's better to open a new report? I don't think the new issue is related to this...

Comment 5 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 15:33:20 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1]. I'm closing this issue, because it has been fixed and verified. Giulio, please report the remaining issues separately, and nominate them as blockers or freeze exceptions if appropriate. Thank you.
