Description Martin Whitaker 2018-11-25 23:12:31 CET
From a fresh install from the Mageia-7-beta1-x86_64 ISO, selecting the Cinnamon DE. On graphical login a pop-up dialogue reports

  Failed to load session "cinnamon"

with the only option being to log out. In .xsession-errors there is the message:

  cinnamon-session[2588]: WARNING: t+0.01587s: Unable to find required component 'cinnamon-screensaver'

Installing the cinnamon-screensaver packages fixes the problem. So it seems there is a missing requires in the cinnamon package.
