Okay, so this is a super annoying and possibly big issue.
For reference, I’m on a late-2015 MacBook Pro and I’ve tried over 15 linux distros and this is the only one that has given me a problem.
So, here’s how I found this issue: I downloaded Fedora ISO from the website, check authenticity, burnt the .iso to a usb, booted from usb, installed Fedora to hard drive. Before and during the installation, everything works just fine. After it boots back up from installing, Fedora performs great. The only issue, is the after I install, I go to the Software app and it says I have 34 updates I need to install. So I click “Restart & Update” and then it does its thing. The unfortunate thing is, after it is seemingly done updating, my screen goes black and stays that way indefinitely. I tried getting the gui to come up, getting a terminal; nothing. I can tell the screen is on, but it is completely blank.
I tried asking around on Reddit and no one seems to know the issue.
By the way, most of the updates are for getting Gnome up to 3.36.2, with a few misc updates and one OS update.
I also tried updating through dnf instead of through the gui software app, with no difference.
This obviously sucks. I essentially can’t use Fedora because the only way to make it work is to NOT update it. I hope someone important or involved enough can see this and help me troubleshoot.
