Chevek F40 20240221 - CPU AMD Ryzen 7 7700 - GPU AMD Radeon RX 6600 - ASRock X670E Taichi - WAYLAND [1] 1. In Anaconda, for the disk, I selected manual mount points. I asked to format both / and /boot/. Both are formated in EXT4 format. This does not follow fedora policy to use BTRFS.
Chevek Fedora Workstation 40 - Gnome Boxes (EFI) [1] 1. #2264930, #2264931, #2264923, 1- The password is broken because I selected the french layout in GNOME and this was used for password creation in GNOME. But GDM ask my password with the US layout (qwerty) at boot time. Thus the password is broken. 2- The hour format is set to AM /PM (US again), but for french people it should be 24-hour. 3- Anaconda print 2 times %%

After creating a user in the Settings > System > Users section, the user doesn't get updated on the screen, so it keeps the recently created username at the top of the window but the data displayed (that can be also edited) is from the current logged user
2. Passed, but there is no Log in as another user option, perhaps because I only have one user account.

rupert160 virt-manager/QEMU, cpu pass through, i7-1165G7 @ 2.8GHz, 2GB vRAM, 20GB disk [1] [2] [3] [4] 1. It's a little confusing: Creating 2 users (one with and without password), the immediate settings screen shows the icon and detail for the primary user that is logged in and created the other users, and the username of the new user is above in the title bar. I would have thought that it would display the new user's icon and details. This might be a bug, it feels wierd but I'll blow to your judgement...
2. Lock screen works as expected.
3. requires me to run sudo systemctl restart gdm to get user selection screen backup again, errors included from journalctl: spice-vdagent[18523]: clipboard: property contains no data (zero length) Feb 24 11:44:46 fedora40 gsd-media-keys[18542]: Unable to get default source Feb 24 11:44:46 fedora40 gsd-media-keys[18542]: Unable to get default sinkthread apply all bt full As it started working after turning on GDB I failed to get a stack trace so didn't submit a ticket - Unreproduceable.
