Infinality breaks Fedora 25 to 26 upgrade

Very much like a previous blog post . In that case the bootchart package borked the F21 to F22 upgrade. Here to make a long story short in going from F25 to F26 this time it was infinality. How did I figure it out? Most of the init sequence would execute but couldn't get to gdm so startup only got so far. Booted into single user mode and then did     init 4 Did a dnf distro-sync but that didn't help. But when I looked in /var/log/messages I saw the error message regarding libharfbuzz mentioned here . /usr/lib/ undefined reference to 'FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates' That link mentioned infinality.  dnf remove infinality-repo dnf remove freetype-infinality  did the trick. Then I could do     init 5 So infinality seemed to break F25 to F26 upgrade.
