Hi all, new user here and Fedora noob, so I probably haven’t heard the basic guidance you’re about to give me already.
I have a Dell XPS 9570 with Fedora 30 installed. I installed all the regular updates through the Software app, and then hit the prominent Upgrade button for Fedora 31, also in the Software app. It downloaded some packages, did a restart, and now after a slow boot I’m stuck with an empty screen save for a
_ in the top left corner.
Based on another post I saw, my theory is it’s related to NVidia drivers misbehaving, but that same post said to use Ctrl-Alt-F3 to bring up the terminal in order to fix it, however this does nothing on my machine. (Ctrl-Alt-Fn-F3 also does nothing). I tried all the Function keys.
The grub menu has an option for a Fedora 30 rescue mode, but this fails due to “Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked.”
Any tips would be appreciated.
