Updated as usual via dnf update, and when I rebooted, the system locked hard and the fan spun for 5 minutes with nothing going on.
I hard powered off.
Power on and no matter which kernel I choose, I get a flash of messages (which no human could possibly read) and then a blank screen with a flashing cursor.
I entered rescue mode and was only able to press “Enter” and get this message:
Of course, I back up my computer every morning, but I really don’t want to reconfigure this system.
P.S. I have full disk encryption turned on and I do get that dialog and I am able to unlock the disk, so that is something. I guess.
