There's a bug in f33-backgrounds-33.0.6-1.fc33 . /usr/share/backgrounds/f33/default/f33.png is a symlink, and it's broken:
[root@xps13k tmp]# ls /usr/share/backgrounds/f33/default/f33.png -l
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 24 Oct 5 18:33 /usr/share/backgrounds/f33/default/f33.png -> ./default/f33-02-day.png
note that the target is ./default/f33-02-day.png , with a single period. It's supposed to be ../default/f33-02-day.png , with two periods.
The symlink is created by a Makefile, and the problem is a stray dollar sign. The offending commit is this one:
Luya made the same change on both master branch and f33-backgrounds branch. On master branch it was done right, but on f33-backgrounds branch he left the dollar sign in accidentally, so the line reads:
$(LN_S) $../default/$(WP_NAME)-02-day.png $(WP_DIR)/default/$(WP_NAME).png
what that actually *runs* during the package build is:
/bin/ln -s ./default/f33-02-day.png /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/f33-backgrounds-33.0.6-1.fc33.noarch/usr/share/backgrounds/f33/default/f33.png
..and so the symlink winds up broken. The fix is simply to drop the dollar sign. I'll send a PR.
This is a clear Final blocker because it means the background on KDE (a release blocking desktop) is a black screen. It doesn't quite hit the automatic blocker rules, though, so I'm just proposing it as a blocker per Final criterion "The proposed final Fedora artwork must be included and used as the background on release-blocking desktops".
