Description Matt Smith 2018-07-17 21:04:01 UTC
Two separate computers with the same configuration have been disabled with the latest updates.  An imac and macbook pro.

After update the both computers showed an error gui saying "something went wrong", with a "Login again" button. This was instead of the gdm login screen. 

None of the logs indicated an error. 

By removing xorg-x11-drv-nvidia I could boot to gnome with the imac.

The macbook pro is unusable. Alternate ttys do not work. Only option is the rescue, which does not include internet so undo last does not work. 

System is broken, and now I have no computer till tuesday.

This update is not safe.

Still the only way to access my computer is via recovery mode, or to use a USB stick with a live cd. I have to reinstall the operating system. 


The update that broke my system was the one that included the following change from

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 4 Ben Cotton 2018-11-30 22:14:54 UTC
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
