I've now tried a clean(er) install on the system, and still have this
problem. Essentially, what I did was
1. Download "Fedora Minimal" and write it to the SD card.
2. Boot up the system in text mode
3. dnf groupinstall MATE base-x
4. systemctl set-default graphical-target
After this, I have a similar problem. Somehow the colours don't look
quite as bad this time, but the resolution is clearly not right. xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 1824 x 984, current 1824 x 984, maximum 1824 x 984
default connected 1824x984+0+0 0mm x 0mm
I'd really like to track this down further to a component the may cause
the issue (or log that could tell me what's wrong), but quite frankly, I
don't know where to start looking. One clue, though, I installed and ran
"monitor-edid", and it said:
[toralf@lille-hjelper ~]$ sudo monitor-edid
Yep, that's right. Absolutely nothing. In earlier releases, it has given
me actual data for the display.

No, but then I've not ran F-31 on a RPi for a month or two, I tend to
move to dev releases pretty quickly and don't regularly use desktop
UXes in testing.
First question is what updates were applied, the most likely
candidates are kernel and mesa. If you reboot into the previous kernel
does it start working again? How long between the updates, was it
days/weeks/months since you last updated and rebooted?

Custom image? Anything else custom or did you start with
minimal/workstation/xfce and cross grade?

Well that's a mostly irrelevant comparison because none of the
software is anywhere near Fedora.
