#44 Try to boot get message -FAILED to start Light Display Manager
Closed: complete a year ago by odilhao. Opened a year ago by nuclear777.

I tried to boot the latest Fedora-i3-Live-x86_64-34-20210227.n.0.iso and during startup it fails with message [FAILED] Starting Light Display Manager

Is there anything I can do to see more debug info? Thanks


Hi,

Thank you for reporting. I'll be looking at this issue, right now I was able to reproduce with this ISO https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-34-20210227.n.0/compose/Spins/x86_64/iso/Fedora-i3-Live-x86_64-34-20210227.n.0.iso

I was able to collect some logs:

The package group @base-x was not being installed with our kickstart, I already created a PR to fix that https://pagure.io/fedora-kickstarts/pull-request/779 . After the merge we will have a usable live-cd.

Hi @nuclear777 after the merge from the PR-779, we got one image from the nightly build system, you can download here https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-34-20210302.n.0/compose/Spins/x86_64/iso/Fedora-i3-Live-x86_64-34-20210302.n.0.iso .

I'm closing this issue now.
