[fc-29] freezes up soon after logging in


hi, i installed fedora-29 twice. after installing it on this lenovo ideapad 330, it will act nicely during the first boot up (creating account ... -- whats weird is that the menu says my wifi adapter is offline but i can go into the terminal and ifconfig/iwconfig it manually).

every time i boot up i am able to select my user from the start up screen and type in passwd but about 10 seconds after displaying the desktop everything freezes ?

Fedora uses a persistent journal, so you can easily check the messages from the prior boot - even from a liveCD.
Can you get into the journal from single user ?.

^ what do you mean
Code:
journalctl -f
?

another detail: when i first selected shutdown it hung on a black screen so i held down the power button for 10 seconds.

another update: i selected classic gnome upon logging in and now my trackpad seems disabled but hitting the win-key shows the overlay but ctrl-alt-f# doesnt provide me another login screen.

in live-usb i am unable to mount the partition because of lvm.
edit: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-...ition-command/
i see a few entries in .../var/log/journal/ with todays date but theyre all binaries.

No I meant "journalctl --file ..." as the manpage describes. As for LVM, the Fedora install medium should recognise those automatically.

That looks pretty ugly - check if abrt has a useful entry else cut out the first oops and open a bugzilla against Fedora. They will push it upstream in need.

So it was a pointless exercise trying to help you. I'll keep that in mind in future.
