This looks like some kind of collision between X servers both trying to use display 0:
Jul 20 09:29:47 localhost.localdomain gnome-shell: Failed to apply DRM plane transform 0: Invalid argument
Jul 20 09:29:47 localhost.localdomain gnome-shell: failed to bind to /tmp/.X11-unix/X0: Address already in use
were you doing something somehow involving multiple X servers at the time? Have you hit this crash again since? Thanks!
I just upgraded to Fedora 27. GDM wayland crashes and falls back to GDM Xorg.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
