Description Thomas Mittelstaedt 2019-04-03 03:32:49 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
Build Identifier: 

Followed https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DNF_sy.... The installation went through ok, but after reboot, the system hangs while waiting for some init process to complete. I read something like nfs peers, a time counter appears. The fedora 28 kernel would not boot anymore either. I am on a DELL INSPIRON AIO 5477. Reinstalled fedora 28 on the pristine system, did dnf upgrade --refresh and fedora 28 boots fine.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from fedora 28 to 29 using dnf or do a fresh install of fedora 29 and a dnf upgrade to sync with the latest code
2.Start the the default kernel
3.Try to login with your user
Actual Results:  
session freezes, grey screen, mouse and keyboard not usable anymore.
rescue kernel boots, though.

Expected Results:  
gnome Desktop should start after login

Comment 1 Thomas Mittelstaedt 2019-04-03 03:35:32 UTC
When little dummy user tries to upgrade a release shouldn't there be some warnings implanted in the upgraed procedure, that critical driver software needs to be installed separately, before the system upgrade can successfully proceed ?!
