After upgrading to kernel 5.17.12-200.fc35 and xfdesktop.x86_64 4.16.0-6.fc35, booting gives a blank screen. After logging in with rescue kernel, and changing identity from root to my login, startxfce4 fails to start gui. A library error message is printed.
None yet. Could editing the grub boot menu help?
Please provide the error message and preferably log files.
Are you able to boot the previous kernel?
I won’t be able to provide an error message or log files for another few
days, as I need to keep the currently running f35-xfce session (boot
from usb) up for a few days to deal with work issues.
I was able to boot from the previous kernel and had the same issue: no
gui. Of course, the upgrade of xfdesktop and perhaps of other display
related software over previous weeks is probably part of the issue.
Possibly extraneous remarks:
In any case, I am reluctant to reinstall f35-xfce for fear that I will
run into exactly the same issue when I use dnf to upgrade to the current
My plan is to try f36-xfce.
