No it is on my laptop (T470s) with 

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 [8086:5916] (rev 02)

rpm -qa: http://pastebin.test.redhat.com/604650
udevadm info --export-db > out : http://pastebin.test.redhat.com/604652

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2018-06-18 13:51:04 UTC
can you put Enable=true in the [debug] section of /etc/gdm/custom.conf, reboot, reproduce, and then attach /var/log/messages ?

Comment 4 Tomas Pelka 2018-06-21 07:58:20 UTC
Created attachment 1453368 [details]

I can for sure attach messages with enabled debugging but there is in fact nothing to reproduce the GNOME on Wayland option is not there.

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2018-06-21 13:28:05 UTC
so the problem is we mucked up a change in the gnome-session spec file during the rebase:

-mv $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/xsessions/gnome-xorg.desktop \
-   $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/wayland-sessions/gnome-wayland.desktop
-sed -i -e 's/Xorg/Wayland/g' $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/wayland-sessions/gnome-wayland.desktop

Just need to add that back I suppose.
