Here we go into another deepdive of "why doesn't X just do the thingy".
This round: I need to reinstall since I screwed up the filesystem partioning.
Figured I'd try a more competently configured installer rather than what F28-WS starts by default (i.e. no software packages picker).
I open up terminal, become root user, type "anaconda", hit enter, and 60 seconds later it's complaining about DBus modules not starting on time.
*looks up how to fix this*
Oh dear lord, it's python scripts...
@dammkewl That's why I call it "LOONIX" because it makes you crazy. When it works, its great - when you fall down the rabbit hole of dependencies or other crap, forget it.
