      what's your favorite way for enabling flash? peeper-flash wrapper or the Adobe repo? The safer the better I guess (I know the real safer should be to leave flash out of the system . Thanks

        Not surprisingly packagers don't care, it's not Gnome bug.
        A couple of comments:
        1. Your bug is far too cluttered, I'd suggest you break into multiple bugs.
        2. Try creating a new account "test" and login into KDE, do you see the same errors?
        3. You may want to join the Fedora-KDE mailing list. A lot of helpful people there.

          I currently have ~50 "lesser" Fedora/KDE machines.
          Might I ask how many Fedora/GNOME machine are you currently managing?

Just after clicking the Try Ubuntu or Install button I get kicked back to console with bunch of dmesg messages about amdgpu and the system halts. This never happens with Fedora, but we all know why it happens with Ubuntu. Anyway, this particular laptop model doesn't seem to like linux systems. Very often I get gnome or app crashes, plus my laptop turned off immediately twice without notice. None of these problems occur when running Windows.

            But for me the biggest problem is the low screen refresh rate. Everything tells me the refresh is 60 Hz, but I can clearly see the screen refreshing like it was 30 Hz or so. This happens on every linux distro I tried: Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, OpenSUSE and others. The only system that can deal with this is Windows, be it 7, 8 or 10. I'm not proficient enough to tell what is causing this, so don't blame me it this can be easly fixed.
            Take a look at your "bios" and look for anything that stands out as rather Windows specific, and see if you can disable either of the gpus.
            At a minimum try switching your uefi into compatibility mode then boot a live image.

              I had no issues, but I use NVIDIA Prime (just run everything on the NV GPU always) and use the driver from negativo17's repo.

              Would you be so kind as to join the Fedora Server mailing list and discuss what issues you have with SELinux? At the very least, everything should be working out of the box. Also, we now have an SELinux Troubleshooter add-on to Cockpit (`dnf install cockpit-selinux`) that will report issues, suggest fixes and enable you to report bugs if you think that the requested action should be possible by default.
              Hi, I don't have any issues with SELinux with default packages. On my webserver, it's just some daemon and other executables from 3rd-party stuff that throws some denials (specifically GNU social's queue daemon and MediaGoblin's paste/celery services). The denials increased in future Fedora versions (F22 was smooth, F23 I needed to set one for GNU social, F24 was when a bunch of things related to the two services above started being denied, and F25 was basically the same as F24).

              I'm not sure if this is a "proper" way of handling this, but I just clear the audit log, set SELinux to permissive, start the problematic service(s), create an audit profile with audit2allow, install the policy, and set SELinux back to enforcing. Now that I know how to do that, the process takes about 10-20 seconds.

                I'd try booting with one or a combination of the following kernel options (only use one of the acpi_osi options):

                Code:
                intel_iommu=on
                Code:
                pcie_aspm=off
                Code:
                pcie_port_pm=off
                Code:
                acpi_osi='Linux'
                Code:
                acpi_osi='!Windows 2015'
