Huh. I'm a bit confused reading that... are you running/using
virtualbox? Or this is on bare hardware?
This is bare hardware with intel GPU. The comment at the
end just points for one possible solution, as virtualbox
used to encounter the same issue.
The issue is linked to increased debugging options enabled on
Rawhide. Stable Fedora releases do not have such debugging
enabled in kernel, so there is no issue in released Fedora versions.
If you boot with nomodeset does it work (all be it slowly) ?
Does it work if you switch to say lightdm?
dnf -y install lightdm
sudo systemctl enable lightdm --force
I haven't try neither nomodeset nor other DMs, because no
maintainer asked for such test. The only interaction maintainers
had with this report was reassigning from kernel to xorg-x11-drv-intel.
(yes, this is me complaining)
