Hello,

I've installed Fedora 25 and I made an update from kernel 4.8 to 4.9 after fresh installation. When I try to log in to GNOME environment, it keeps returning me back to GDM. GNOME Classic works without problem. I've tried editing

/etc/gdm/custom.conf

to

WaylandEnable=false

but nothing changed. Before the update, it worked without issue. How can I solve this? Thank you.

Does only GNOME Classic work and does neither GNOME nor GNOME on Xorg work? (You will have to undo the WaylandEnable=false setting first, if you want to test this.)

If you useing the gdm-3.22.2, that is gdm issue! You need upgrade gdm-3.22.3 from update-test repo or can download koji build systems. Also same fix issue of downgrade gdm-3.22.1 too.

I've got (maybe) the same issue, since a batch of updates the last week i can no longer directly login to default (wayland) gnome on F25 (virtualized via Hyper-V). This was no issue before. Now only gdm classic (and gnome under xorg) works. Also when connected from a remote-xterm-console i usually could run "glxgears" or whatever and would get the exported rendered window on my local machine, this no longer works.

Error for glxgears from terminal:

"Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual"

Entries in journalctl at time of login (when i am thrown back to login screen)

You both have issues with the driver for your graphic card. Please post here details about your graphic hardware and driver.

Would it be the same using a virtualized system ? (in which case, Innotek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter).

I'll give this a "me too," and "new breakage." I always used gnome+wayland. Now that combo just keeps returning to the gdm login screen. For me, selecting gnome on xorg works. I'm curious about what broke, and I don't know how to go any further with debugging. I saw nothing apparent logs.
