Description Benjamin Xiao 2015-11-17 00:49:34 EST
Description of problem:
After installing the proprietary Nvidia driver 352.63 (latest one that supports xorg 1.18) in Fedora 23, I have to wait several minutes for the system to login to Gnome Shell. However, I can speed things up by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to the desktop session. If I don't press Ctrl-Alt-F2, the screen remains on Ctrl-Alt-F1 and displays an empty gray screen for several minutes before finally switching.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg 1.18
gdm 3.18.0-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Nvidia driver 352.63 from Nvidia site (or you could use Fedora 22 RPMfusion driver with downgraded xorg, which is what I used before 352.63 was released)
2. Login
3. Note that the screen stays on Ctrl-Alt-F1 and displays a gray screen instead of switching to the X session on Ctrl-Alt-F2. The screen will stay like this for several minutes before finally switching.

Actual results:
After login, takes a long time to switch to desktop session on Ctrl-Alt-F2

Expected results:
After login, it should automatically and immediately switch to Ctrl-Alt-F2
