Hi. I’m trying to install Fedora on my notebook but I’m not able to. I can create the Fedora usb drive, the system starts but when I click to open the installer, it doesn’t open. I’ve tried it with Fedora versions 33, 34 and 35 and it’s the same thing. I tried to start Anaconda from Terminal and the screen changed to the login screen and then the terminal showed the following:
liveuser@localhost-live ~]$ sudo anaconda Starting installer, one moment… anaconda 35.22.2-3.fc35 for anaconda bluesky (pre-release) started. * installation log files are stored in /tmp during the installation * shell is available on TTY2 and in second TMUX pane (ctrl+b, then press 2) * when reporting a bug add logs from /tmp as separate text/plain attachments 11:13:52 Not asking for VNC because we don’t have a network Traceback (most recent call last): File “/usr/sbin/anaconda”, line 506, in ignore_oemdrv_disks() File “/usr/lib64/python3.10/site-packages/pyanaconda/ui/lib/storage.py”, line 388, in ignore_oemdrv_disks matched = device_matches(“LABEL=OEMDRV”, disks_only=True) File “/usr/lib64/python3.10/site-packages/pyanaconda/core/storage.py”, line 180, in device_matches single_spec_matches = udev.resolve_glob(full_spec) File “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/blivet/udev.py”, line 163, in resolve_glob for dev in get_devices(): File “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/blivet/udev.py”, line 81, in get_devices dev = device_to_dict(device) File “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/blivet/udev.py”, line 53, in device_to_dict result = dict(device.properties) File “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/pyudev/device/_device.py”, line 1068, in **getitem** return ensure_unicode_string(value) File “/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/pyudev/_util.py”, line 64, in ensure_unicode_string value = value.decode(sys.getfilesystemencoding()) UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xf6 in position 4: invalid start byte
After this message, the installer did not work.
Below is the link to my Hardware report made with AIDA64.
Thank you very much
