Fedora 27, Nvidia, Gnome, and Wayland

on Mar.26, 2018, under Linux

I’ve been having trouble recently with my home desktop having gnome-shell chew through 100% CPU and leave the system unresponsive.  Ordinarily, it seemed that updating the binary Nvidia drivers shortly thereafter would fix it, but not most recently.  I followed someone’s suggestion to switch to lightdm instead of GDM, and while that worked, lightdm does not play nicely with Gnome in some ways – specifically screen locking does not integrate, which is quite annoying.  Ultimately, I think the problem is the switch from Xorg to Wayland, and the Nvidia drivers not playing nicely with that.  I just now switched WaylandEnable=false in /etc/gdm/custom.conf.  So far that seems to be working.
