As F32 is going end-of-life, and having skipped F33 because of apparent
compatibility issues with the Fedora KDE Spin, I tried a clean install
of Fedora 34.
Booting from a USB of /Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-34-1.2.iso/ my computer
just hangs at the point it tries to start the desktop. I get a black
screen with a mouse cursor. Moving the mouse does not move the cursor,
the keyboard is unresponsive, the only way out I have found is to power
cycle the machine. I tried several times before giving up, settling for
upgrading my existing F32 installation with DNF
dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=34 --allowerasing
dnf system-upgrade reboot
That has worked as expected, although the filesystem is still ext4 of
course, not the new BTRFS.

u gotta enable the emegency shell to be able to start htop
where u see WTF is goin' on here.
e.g. like so:
options root=UUID=0f1b6060-7eb4-40ef-b968-147079494df6 ro rootflags=subvol=root rhgb
mitigations=off systemd.debug-shell=1 rd.plymouth=0 plymouth.enable=0
and see whether gdm or kwin_x11 got going et cetera
