I've tried Fedora 24 Beta Workstation both in VM (Virtual Box) and on bare metal. Only instance running directly on my machine offered a Wayland session. Why is Wayland not offered in VM?

Illustrative screenshot: Available sessions are offered after clicking on gear icon next to Sign in button on login screen.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.


Wayland needs to be supported by the video driver. At the moment only some open source drivers included in the kernel have support.
