Hi folks! Just wanted to let everyone know where we're at with
An Alpha RC2 compose request is in, and RC2 should be building at
present. The main change between RC1 and RC2 is a fix for the problems
with gnome-initial-setup: it should now work properly if you don't
create a user during install. There's also an updated selinux-policy
which should hopefully squish all the AVCs we've been seeing during
regular install and boot. It should arrive some time this evening US
time, all being well.
There does still seem to be some kind of kernel issue. Multiple people
have had a similar experience of booting an F26 VM and seeing boot fail
due to a kernel GPF. We've seen many different tracebacks, but it could
still all be basically the same problem. We have the following bug
reports so far:
I would add this one for Power64 to that list then too, while some
users are reporting it works for them I've not had such luck, and in
fact ramdom luck with different kernels/same kernels where sometime it
boots and sometimes not.
