So we're building 23 Final RC2 now, but we have a couple of
proposed blocker bugs, and we could use some more data to evaluate
The way to test is really simple:
* Install F23 Final TC11 Workstation or KDE live
* Create a user and log in
* Log out a bunch of times. Just keep logging in and out.
Ideally try this both in a VM and on a real system, if you have a
system to test on.
There are two bugs that you might hit:
With the first one, the system gets stuck at a black screen after
logging out. You won't be able to switch to a TTY or anything, but if
you have another system, you'll find that ssh'ing in still works. So
far it seems this bug *only* affects Workstation (we believe it
involves Wayland, and Workstation has GDM-on-Wayland). It seems easy
reproduce in a KVM, harder to reproduce on a real system, but some
testers have reproduced it on a real system after several attempts.
We're particularly interested in whether you hit it on a real system,
and if so, how often.
With the second bug, assuming you don't hit the first bug, the cursor
disappears on the login screen, possibly after you click somewhere
(e.g. the password text entry box). Roshi says he sees something like
this on Workstation but not KDE, kparal says he sees it on KDE but
Workstation, and I can't reproduce it on either. This one is probably
only reproducible in a KVM, but of course let us know if you manage
trigger it on a real system!
If you could report back to the list what configuration you tested
and whether and how often you managed to reproduce either bug, that
would be a great help. For virtual machine testing, please let us
* What virtualization system you used (KVM/virt-manager is preferred)
* For a KVM:
** Whether your VM has a virtual 'tablet' input device (one
is often created by default, so check in virt-manager)
** What video adapter and viewer you're using (e.g. qxl/SPICE or
** What OS and release is running on the host system
** The graphics adapter and driver being used on the host system

I've tested the "mouse cursor" bug (the one reported by Roshi) with
~15/20 attempts: I haven't been able to reproduce it.
Here are some details:
1) qemu-kvm via virt-manager on a Fedora 22 host
2) Yes, my VM has got that virtual 'tablet', created by default.
3) The video adapter is QXL/SPICE here.
4) Two Amd GPUs (4250m+5650m) with radeon driver on the host.
5) KDE x86_64 TC11 on the guest.
