Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-09-03 12:05:17 EDT
Description of problem:
On Fedora 23 Alpha you can uninstall xorg-x11-server-Xorg keeping gnome-session-wayland-session. This is fine in my opinion since Gnome+Wayland mostly works.
If you do so, you will still see the gnome-session (the Xorg version) in GDM's session chooser. This is bad since it will not work any more after uninstalling xorg-x11-server-Xorg.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2017-08-29 07:05:40 EDT
makes sense to me.  we can't, of course, have gnome-session itself require Xorg, but having the display manager xsession file do so seems like a good idea.
