Description of problem:
After installing F10 Snap3 and then rebooting, I am faced with Firstboot.
When I complete all the steps, I should be presented with GDM. Instead of that, all I get is a black screen.
Switching VTs work so that I can login, launch gdm myself, startx or do whatever I want. But shouldn't the transition from Firstboot to GDM be automatic ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The versions available on the F10 Snap3 x86_64 image.
Note that I was faced with this issue since beta (but unfortunately, I should have reported earlier).
I'll attach the firstboot log.
Smolt fails to send my hardware profile, so I'm attaching its output too, for informations on my hardware.

Output from smolt
For the record, I posted a comment (as well as smolt full error message) on bug 447703.
Could the two be related ? Like smolt failing would not let Firstboot to move to GDM ?
Shouldn't be too hard to test that - what happens if you choose to not send the smolt data?
Ah yes, reproducable in all cases. This should be fixed in the next build of firstboot. Thanks for the report.
