yesterday i followed the guide in fedora magazine on how to update from fedora 26 stable to fedora 27 beta...i am not expecting a beta being perfectly stable but gnome shell is crashing way too much to usually hangs for some second then it crash and when it restarts i have the notification gnome shell has this something i can fix or i should wait for the system to being more stable?

does abrt tell you more about the crash of gnome shell. worth checking if it has already been reported.

I’m closing this Q since it’s asking about F27 beta which is long gone.

No, the problem is a real bug (I'm also encountering it). There might be workarounds you can do (e.g. changing some special settings or whatever), but I'm not aware of any. Anyway, it is probably this bug:

@luca247 if the problem persists beyond Fedora 27 beta release, you may want to consider editing the title of the question.

I am using Fedora 27 (stable). It works fine in my desktop but in my notebook (HP Pro book) gnome crashes each time I try to login. Since Fedora 28 was released, I am thinking about upgrading into version 28. Would that solve my problem?

Create a new user and check if it crashes there too. F27 should not crash on every login anyway.
