Hans, I can totally understand the pain - but from a different angle we can
ask why Fedora 32 chose to break VirtualBox (which no other distribution
seems to have done to date, and even RHEL8 defaults to Wayland which I see
as excessively optimistic). Yes, the fix is simple, but in our plan the fix
will go first into the Fedora 32 specific RPM package which we're working
on already. Which we need to do because the Fedora 31 one no longer can be
installed on Fedora 32 (usual dependency problems). It's simply a risk
management question. Who guarantees that the environment variable tweak
will not backfire on some old Qt install? Klaus

proper fix for this is likely going to require some time and in the mean
time users are being bitten by this bug. Also given that I reported this
serious bug, which basically makes VirtualBox completely unusable on
default Fedora 32 installs over a month ago I must say I'm a bit
disappointed by how VirtualBox upstream is handing this. You could have
fixed this with the April 14th 6.1.4 release by including my 1 line
workaround for now. Instead you have let users of VirtualBox on Fedora 32
out in the cold.

Ah, I see. Perhaps try a different language? I've heard cobalt works a bit
