PlatformHP OMENOSRocky 9.1OS Version9.1
Summary0001420: sddm does not allow login
DescriptionWith a fresh install of Rocky 9.1 I attempt to install Plasma. This worked with 9.0 (instructions found on the web). All goes without error. Upon reboot after disabling gdm and enabling sddm, keyboard input is not possible. Randomly, the mouse may or may not move the cursor but even if the cursor moves clicking has no effect. Plasma was working fine on 9.0 but accepting the upgrade to 9.1 broke everything. Prior to 9.0 I was using Rocky 8.5 with plasma. I will attempt an install of 8.7 to see if that works.

It would be nice if plasma was an option at install time so there would not be all these hoops to jump through to get a decent desktop.
Steps To ReproduceHere are the commands used to install plasma.

    2 dnf -y install epel-release
    3 dnf config-manager --set-enabled crb
    4 dnf -y update
    5 dnf group -y install "KDE Plasma Workspaces"
   10 sudo systemctl disable gdm
   11 sudo systemctl enable sddm
Additional InformationSwitching to another terminal I notice many messages involving the nouveau display driver. In a second attempt I installed the nvidia driver for my card. With that driver installed sddm does not even get activated. I am enabling sddm so that I can choose plasma.
