In general marketing terms like "UHD" aren't important.
If you have a
graphics adapter that isn't properly supported, you know one thing:
that graphics adapter isn't supported. :D Between you and that other
reporter...you know that the two models you have don't work.
The graphics are the native on the motherboard standard intel graphics
as supported by the processor and the chip set. Here are the links to
the Intel documents:
The chip set number is why ASUS named their motherboard PRIME Z590-A.
Here the link to the motherboard:
I'd recommend you file a bug, not against mutter, but against
the kernel (and then CC ajax(a)redhat.com) or xorg-x11-drv-intel (which
isn't technically correct but should find the right people). Include
the information requested in
(more or less; that hasn't been updated for a while, but it's the best
reference we've got). At least include the system journal and the lspci
Well, I got things a bit out of order. I actually returned the PC to the
local company that assembled it for me last Thursday. They are going to
get a motherboard with different chip-set and try it with the F33 WS
Live install. If it turns out they can't get a combination that will run
a Wayland session. I will take it back and and run it with Gnome-xorg
until Fedora is more up to date.
As for filing the bug: Though I can't provide the technical items (logs,
journals, etc) since I don't currently have the PC. I am still inclined
to file the bug. with just the information I have in this e'mail chain;
so the appropriate folks can have a heads up. Please let me know if you
think I should wait.
Well at least I can still run Wayland on my test machine.
Have a Great Day!
