Today I had a day off and decided to install Fedora Rawhide from 2022/12./23, which I had downloaded two days earlier,
on a trial basis. The installation from the usb key went without any major problems, remembering my previous problems
with XFS this time I chose ext2 for the /boot directory and ext4 for the rest.

After the installation I was positively surprised, GDM booted by default with Wayland enabled and ran desktop on both cards:
ASPEED and Radeon Pro WX7100. I have two monitors connected to the Radeon with resolutions of 5120x2160 and 1920x1200.
To the ASPEED card I have a monitor connected with a resolution of 1600x1200. Wayland ran at maximum resolution on the two
smaller monitors and at 2560x1080 on the largest monitor. Gnome 43.1 ran quite smoothly on this virtual screen. Even moving
windows from tab to tab caused no noticeable problems. I tried to increase the resolution on the largest monitor from within Gnome
but was unsuccessful. Unfortunately, due to Wayland's serious shortcomings when it comes to the ability to configure details,
gnome-tweaks, xset, etc., I went back to the standard X11 installation with two monitors.

From my point of view, the most interesting new features in Fedora 38 are:
  • kernel 6.2.0 series, in this case 0.rc2.20230103;
  • very good support for Samsung SSDs, reding above 6.2 GB/s;
  • Gnome 43.1, which, despite the developers' efforts, can be personalized with extensions such as WhiteSur ;-)
  • NetBeans 16 and Java 17 work flawlessly.

Is Wayland still limited to 1024x768 on the ASPEED?

No, full monitor resolution 1600x1200 works fine.

I think that's a Blackbird-specific issue; I think DKnoto is on a Talos II.

Yes, I think you're right. Sigh.

1080p was never an issue. It's about 1200p.

Kind of. There was an issue with 1200p affecting the AST2500 (which is fixed in Linux 6.3); there's a separate issue with 1080p (among other resolutions) affecting the IT66121 (which AFAIK is not fixed yet, but I haven't tested). Sometimes these issues get conflated because Blackbird users normally don't use the AST2500 or IT66121 without the other.

One nice (depending on your point of view) change in Fedora 38 is that SDDM now uses Wayland by default, meaning that DisplayLink GPU's work properly in SDDM without changing settings.
