    Hello,
    Fedora 29 is out. But it's not compatible yet with Parallels Desktop for Mac.
    Would be good to support it.

    Thanks,

    Omega BK

    +1 on this. Parallels should support it asap.

    Works for me. I provided my own ISO, of course.

    I installed Fedora Server first with that iso, then installed workstation with: sudo dnf -y group install "Fedora Workstation"

    This did not work for me, as a result the Fedora 29 VM hangs when GDM should start up. Looks identical to the black screen coming up when you try to install the VM from the Fed 29 Workstation iso. Is this a known issue to the Parallels team?

    PS Mac OS 10.13.6, Parallels 14

    I think I figured out what the problem y'all might be having is, because I just bricked my Fedora 29 install. Basically, Parallels can't handle a graphical login with Fedora 29. However, if you do a command line login, then "startx", it's fine.

    So, the default for me initially with the server install (and then later installing the workstation) was a command line login, equivalent to:
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target

    However, once I did this, for a graphical login:
    systemctl set-default graphical.target
    , the boot screen hung black, effectively locking me out of the VM.

    I think that's what Parallels has to fix.
