Description W. Michael Petullo 2017-11-04 13:34:48 UTC
Description of problem:
I am running gnome-shell On Wayland, and Wayland becomes blurry when I select some resolutions. I can confirm Wayland (and not X11) is running with "loginctl show-session NUM -p Type". This was not a problem with Fedora 26. The program "lspci" reports my graphics card as:

VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Baffin [Polaris11]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from Fedora 26 to 27.
2. Set the display resolution of a Wayland/GNOME session to 2880x1620

Actual results:
Screen becomes blurry

What is the native resolution or the screen or monitor?  Is the whole screen blurry or just some windows?  What resolution does a full-screen screenshot have?

There are a couple of possibilities.  If you're not at the native resolution, then there is going to be some blurriness as the screen is stretched.  The other possibility is that you're triggering hidpi mode, but I don't think that should be blurry.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Ben Cotton 2018-11-30 18:49:10 UTC
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
