An update of:

In addition to the changes listed by upstream, the following fixes for critical Calamares bugs specifically affecting Fedora were upstreamed into Calamares 3.2.8:

  • A severe packaging issue has been fixed (by fixing the CMake code detecting the library): Boost::Python3 was previously not detected correctly, so all Python modules were missing. This is now corrected.
  • A critical bug where it would fail to mount /dev/mapper/live-base (for unpacking into the target) was fixed. (There were in fact 2 bugs: 1. the loop device /dev/mapper/live-base would get accidentally destroyed by the ClearMountsJob in the partition module (a regression in 3.2.x), and 2. the mounting in the mount module would fail to mount it due to the mount flags used (a bug that also affected the previous Fedora package).)
  • An issue where systems installed with Calamares and with SELinux enabled would fail to start dbus-broker due to an SELinux labeling issue was fixed.

In addition, in the Calamares package included in this update:

  • The "Secure Boot" shim support was fixed to create /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg using grub2-mkconfig, so that UEFI installations are actually bootable. (This fix will be included in Calamares 3.2.9.)
  • The optional calamares-webview subpackage is now built against QtWebKit rather than QtWebEngine because QtWebEngine no longer accepts running as root without workarounds (and unfortunately, Calamares still needs to run as root, unlike KDE Partition Manager).
  • Calamares has a new calamares-plasmalnf subpackage with the optional (disabled by default) plasmalnf module that allows configuring the Plasma look&feel. The module is optional because it depends on Plasma.

I removed #1639021 from the bugs claimed fixed, hopefully upstream can fix it for real soon.

I have backported an upstream patch that should fix #1639021 and re-added that bug to the list.

I also set the suggestion to logout because I had seen partitionmanager doesn't see any device after the upgrade from 3.x. Logging off and in again make it works again.

With calamares-3.2.8-3.fc30, Calamares should now finally be fully working again.
