Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2019-03-23 01:29:43 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 30-beta by Fedora user satellit using the blocker tracking app because:

 Unable to install workstation due to gdm not starting in bios boot GDM only works in wayland
Bios boot install freezes at gdm
 results in black screen with cursor.

Comment 4 satellitgo 2019-03-25 01:34:37 UTC
