Rawhide KDE live images boot to a black screen
Last modified: 2015-12-18 16:28:12 EST
Sorry, there are so many KDE components I have absolutely no idea what to file this on any more.
If you boot a current Rawhide KDE nightly live - https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/work/tasks/1413/12051413/Fedora-Live-KDE-x86_64-rawhide-20151204.iso - it shows the splash screen, then just a black screen with a cursor. But KDE is clearly running in some way; if you leave it idle for a while, the lock screen appears. I'll attach ~/.xsession-errors , please let me know what other logs would be useful.
Proposing as an Alpha blocker: "Release-blocking live images must boot to the expected boot menu, and then to a desktop or to a login prompt where it is clear how to log in to a desktop." - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_24_Alpha_Release_Criteria#Expected_image_boot_behavior

.xsession-errors (from a KVM)
This is still happening now the dependency issues are resolved and we have KDE lives again, see the tests from today in openQA:
Actually we already have an accepted blocker for this issue :).
