I just upgraded an old box to fedora 29
model name    : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E7400  @ 2.80GHz

when booted, none of these kernels has /sys/class/drm/* populated

and all have trouble with graphical mode,

I am causally linking these 2 facts,
does that make sense?
If so, it makes sense to file a bugzilla report,
what else should it include ?

lightdm/kde work the best, setting screen resolution at minimal VGA
gdm fell over, never replaced the splash screen


I built an rc3+ kernel, copied f29 config, make localmodconfig,
It has /sys/class/drm/* and sets right resolution on boot.
