Having tried Fed 28 and found it always crashing because of Lack of AKMOD for NVIDIAS, I decided to go back to 27 and did a fresh in install, which has run very well for weeks until last Saturday, when I did a DNF UPDATE and BOOM....Unable to get to log in screen on any of the boot options - always greeted with "Oops, some thing went wrong" (even the rescue option )

So I did a fresh install again of 27 yesterdays, did all the dnf updates, re booted a few times and all seemed good....untill this morning when I am greeted with |"oops, somethign went wrong " again I have no reports of any hardware failure and the HDD passes all test

Do I really have to go through hours of install, updates and install again or is there anyrthing else I can do to get this working again ? I can't really spend all day again getting my machine working so any help will be gratefully accepted

Thanks in advance

Nvidia installation using RPMfusion repositories ??? i have seen many article on this people who installed nvidia drivers or pacakages using rpmfusion faces a lot of trouble in their systems . Ref to nvidia manual installation ....

Issues like run level changes , system boot fail , etc etc ...

Try to boot with older kernel. If it doesn't help, you can also undo last update using dnf history list and dnf history undo update_id.

I used nVidia for over a decade. I always used rpmfusion and never had the slightest bit of trouble.

as per nvidia technical team they suggest to avoid installation using rpmfusion repo

visit http://nvidia.custhelp.com/ and chat with nvidia technical assistance http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/chat/c...

Any reasons other then them wanting everybody to use the same driver versions from their site (in spite of the fact, that updating that way sucks compared to streamlined RPMFusion updates)?
