VM hangs and does not complete boot

systemctl -f enable gdm

Yes I think it worked, I will reboot

[root@salamlinux ~]# systemctl -f enable gdm
Removed /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service → /usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service.

Yes, @grumpey , now login screen is displayed in boot process and I can RDP as well correcly, so I will proceed to upgrade to F35

One thing before upgrading to f35, @oprizal indicated in the procedure to upgrade that I should check

dnf repoquery --unsatisfied
and it should be empty which is not the case as you can see

root@salamlinux ~]# dnf repoquery --unsatisfied

To make sure, run sudo dnf distro-sync. Please don’t forget to make snapshot on your hyperv as backup.

@all, just finished upgrading the 2nd VM to F35, it went very sommthly, boot process went through and I can RDP with my user.
However, RDPing with root is not working anymore. Any possible reason for this?
Also, another side effect, when I trigger terminal, I get

GVM-JAVA_HOME not set and cannot find javac to deduce location, please set…

Thanks again for all of you

By default, root password are locked. I’m not sure when it start like that as default. But you can activate it again with sudo passwd root type your user admin password, and then new password for root.

By the way, your recent upgrade using custom config for hyperv or not? I need the confirmation about thus workaround to fix xserver on bios gen 1 in hyperv.

On the boot screen, I can login with root and its password, with no issue.
No I did not use custom config for hyperv for this 2nd machine

In fact, i used desktop-switch to switch to xfce4 desktop and I was able to RDP with ROOT. Not sure why before F35 the other desktop was working with RDP and now not after upgrading to F35
