After much fiddling I managed to install the minimal Fedora 22 in a very old netbook with only 4GB SSD. After that I installed lxqt with dnf groupinstall lxqt.

The system does not boot to the GUI but to the text login prompt. When I try to start lxqt:

# startlxqt
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display 
Aborted (core dumped)

If I change the target to graphical it freezes where it should show the graphical login:

systemctl set-default

Then I need to manually change the run level to 3 at boot to get to the text prompt.

How to debug?

Can you run startx at least?

Can you check if you have a Display Manager? (with LXQt I recommend sddm)
