FEDORA-2021-631306a178 created by adamwill a year ago for Fedora 35

This update should make sddm start correctly when it needs to run on X.org, including on the Raspberry Pi 4, possibly on older graphics hardware, and when booting an installer or live image in "basic graphics mode" (which passes the nomodeset kernel parameter).

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh --advisory=FEDORA-2021-631306a178

I ran sudo dnf offline-upgrade download with updates-testing enabled then sudo dnf offline-upgrade reboot in a Fedora 35 KDE Plasma spin installation with the GNOME desktop group installed. The update included sddm-0.19.0-17.fc35 and had the following warning: /etc/sddm.conf created as /etc/sddm.conf.rpmnew On the next boot the Desktop Session: option showed GNOME Classic instead of Plasma (Wayland) which I had been using. Plasma (Wayland) and GNOME on Wayland weren't in the list of desktop sessions anymore. sddm-0.19.0-17.fc35 didn't allow logging in to the Plasma on Wayland desktop session as a result. I downgraded to sddm-0.19.0-16 and rebooted. Plasma (Wayland) and GNOME on Wayland were in the desktop sessions list again. I reported this problem at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2016788

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

This works for me on the rpi/etc.

I suspect if the wayland sessions are missing its because of the udev rule update which isn't finding a DRM device?

Look at /etc/sddm/hide-wayland-sessions.

This needs to be immediately rolled back. See #2016788. We can't have users upgrading to F35 and not having Plasma Wayland available.

This update has been unpushed.

This one still seems to be working for me, and now the X11/wayland sessions menu seems correct on the aarch64/nouveau, aarch64/efifb, x86_64 hybrid nvidia & nouveau, and amdgpu machine.

I can confirm Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-35-1.2.iso boots into the basic graphics mode in BIOS mode on my Thinkpad T480s.

sddm-0.19.0-18.fc35 showed Plasma (Wayland) and GNOME on Wayland normally in its Desktop sessions list. I've logged into Plasma on Wayland as usual with it. Thanks. Since the latest patch removes the lines with /etc/sddm/hide-wayland-sessions from 61-sddm-plasmawayland.rules https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/sddm/c/52dc921f03abf4524bb2ca249ef28cf78b8c0e4a?branch=f35 Zbigniew's problem at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1966653 might also be fixed by it.
