Can not login into Gnome at all in F36/Nvidia T600/510.68.02

Now it is hard to pinpoint what caused it, but probably one of latest “dnf update” caused it. I was at F35 at the moment, so tried to google a little bit, deleted and reinstalled nvidia drivers multiple times. Tried to perform dnf history rollback, but was not able to do it because of some package conflicts. Updated to F36 in last minute effort, tried deleting and reinstalling nvidia drivers again.

Basically, everything boots fine until login screen, but when I try to log in with Wayland it either it shows fedora spinning boot screen, from where I can enter command line through Ctrl+Alt+F3, or recently it is just no display signal at all.

Here sudo journalctl -b -p err from SSH after failed log in attempt:

I have tried to google some solutions based on journalctl errors, but I am assmuning that it is some sort of old random bug without any particular solution… For example, here.

BTW, booting with Xorg or Gnome Classic also gives just black screen. Also booting with previous kernels also does not help either.

Upgrading to a new release of Fedora :: Fedora Docs

sudo dnf distro-sync tomorrow is official release so you can test distro-sync and see if this change something.

But from experiences of other version changes, i would say you will need to install the NVIDIA drivers where probably not are available yet (version change 35-36 and also kernel change 5.16 > 5.17).
