I'm trying to install Fedora 25 Workstation on Lenovo Ideapad. Using VMWare Player with 20GB HDD space, 2GB RAM, 2 Processor core. Installation goes fine till stage 2 where Anaconda tries to create the User. Then, it shows a pop up that an error has occurred. Following is the error:
The following was filed automatically by anaconda: anaconda 25.20.8-1 exception report Traceback (most recent call first): File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/users.py", line 379, in createUser raise OSError("Unable to create user %s: status=%s" % (user_name, status)) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/kickstart.py", line 1801, in execute users.createUser(usr.name, **kwargs) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/install.py", line 95, in doConfiguration ksdata.user.execute(storage, ksdata, instClass, u) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/threading.py", line 862, in run self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs) File "/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/pyanaconda/threads.py", line 251, in run threading.Thread.run(self, *args, **kwargs) OSError: Unable to create user 0111: status=3 Additional info: addons: com_redhat_kdump cmdline: /usr/bin/python3 /sbin/anaconda --liveinst -- method=livecd:///dev/mapper/live-base cmdline_file: BOOT_IMAGE=vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-WS-Live-25-1-3 rd.live.image quiet executable: /sbin/anaconda hashmarkername: anaconda kernel: 4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64 other involved packages: system-python-libs-3.5.2-4.fc25.x86_64 product: Fedora release: Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five) type: anaconda version: 25
Also please note, that I have installed LinuxMint and Lubuntu in VMWare Player with same configurations in same machine and they are working without such problems. Hoping to fix this and move to fedora soon!
