All the recent announcements about X11 make me more worried about Fedora 40.

What's up? You think they're going to shovel Wayland onto everyone prematurely with a "good luck suckers" to X users? I swear, it feels like people have lost their fool minds for anything outside a narrow band of mainstream use cases...

It has actually happened (but in bug form)

GDM would crash if I use disable WaylandMode and GNOME (XOrg) also crashes for me

Bug reported at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2239055

I do not think it would be the deal breaker because XWayland is still supported

Recent announcements that both GNOME and KDE Plasma may ship in Fedora 40 without an X11 session (so that way it doesn't need to be supported in the next RHEL).

It probably won't be a (big) problem for the Talos II, since I have a WX7100 GPU. It *may* be a problem for my Blackbird since I explicitly run that strictly on the BMC framebuffer as a low-end test.

Well, hopefully that won't break anything on my Blackbird running Xfce. I bop over to GNOME every couple of months to kick the tires, go "welp this still isn't for me," and hop back.

What is the problem with GDM/GNOME and Wayland?
I have absolutely no problem neither with amdgpu nor with the AST. With the AST everything is a little slower, of course.

I got various graphical problems with Wayland GNOME on the AST, like window decorations not painting and the like. It appeared to be cosmetic but it was still very obnoxious.
