View Full Version : V.slow mouse / grab space 'lost'

Downloaded F26, validated checksum.
F25 on SSD, tiny bit of space left.

Live CD, 64 bit.
Checked DVD prior to 'install to HD'.
OK (response wise) up until 'choose language'.
Mouse response is horribly slow. As in 5 /10 seconds. Seems to work, but on ultra slow-motion?
Struggle on.
I need to recover space (i.e. new install on SSD).
Once I select manual partition, this option is lost?

With that and mouse problems, F26 is #fail for me?
Only other oddity (if it is), 34" screen (though code seems to handle this prior to keyboard
selection and display is fine in appearance)

Suggestions please ? Report a bug?

I experienced similar issues.
Is your system running on a Nvidia Pascal GPU (GTX 10x0 series)?

Mmm. Yes, 1050Ti You think that is a problem?
Seems OK prior to the kbd / lang screen?

Could try installing with another screen... but if it's two of us, then perhaps
we should report a bug?

Well, afaik this is an known issue that Wayland + Pascal + the open source driver for Nvidia GPUs are not woking well together.

If this is the case, there is not much Fedora can do besides shipping Nvidia's driver (wont happen) or to omit loading of the open source driver if a Pascal GPU is detected.

Thanks. I'll load an old GT750, see how that does. I'll report back.

Back to a 750 and the mouse is working. Can follow procedure...

Still stuck. I don't want LVM.
Seems I can't reclaim disk space without it (standard partitioning).
For me, not a good choice.

Is this just too old fashioned?
I don't want the paranoid security extras either.
