I appreciate your continued testing, but I am increasingly uninterested
in reading test reports without enough information to actually diagnose
the problems they describe.  Have you considered looking at the relevant
log files and including suspicious fragments in your test reports?

I too ran into this yesterday as well as this morning (today's updates applied).  Get to where anaconda starts the GUI to start the install, and it fails to start, and I can't find a reason why.

I looked through the vt's and couldn't find any errors to show me why x itself wouldn't run.  But maybe there were and didn't know what I was looking for.  BTW, this was nfs install via boot.iso on against
a rawhide tree fully synced.

It did offer to do a texts/vnc install though.

(I don't save emails, so had to copy and paste this from the web archives, from subject Re: Intel DG22BU still bollixes Rawhide).
