Comment 1 George R. Goffe 2020-09-20 04:35:50 UTC
gdm-disable-way comes from gdm-1:3.38.0-1.fc34.x86_64 : The GNOME Display Manager.

Why is this code running at all? THere is NO X11 running in this system.

Comment 2 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2020-09-20 08:43:18 UTC
/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules omvples gdm-disable-wayland for certain hardware. I guess the policy should not deny it.

Comment 3 Ben Cotton 2021-02-09 16:11:39 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 34 development cycle.
Changing version to 34.
