Proposed as a Blocker for 32-final by Fedora user tuna using the blocker tracking app because:

 Really bad user experience.

(Wrong bug in previous entry, sorry.)

Comment 2 Andreas Tunek 2020-03-23 09:51:26 UTC
This seems to be hardware dependent, I tested on another computer and there it works as it should. I will try to reinstall again.

Comment 3 Andreas Tunek 2020-03-23 10:56:11 UTC
I made a new install on the same hardware without LVM, and then everything seems to work. So it is not a problem with this component.
