F26 Tiger VNC server still has blank screen.

The vncserver 'black screen' issue persists into Fedora 26. Here are the workarounds I've done so far. 1) Disable SELinux (setenforce 0) so I can get vncserver running using systemctl. 2) Login using 'GNOME on Xorg' for both server and client. 3) On the server, edit $HOME/.vnc/xstartup. Replace 'exec /etx/X11/xinit/xinitrc' with 'exec gnome-session'.

The vncviewer comes up with cursor working, but always a blank screen. This appears to be a GNOME display manager issue.
