#76 Silverblue freezes on GDM in Fedora 31.
Opened 3 months ago by lruzicka. Modified 3 months ago

I have installed Silverblue using the 20190828 compose of Silverblue 31. The installation went normally. I rebooted the computer, it started the plymouth screen and it ended upon entering the GDM and only provided a white screen of death suggesting I would contact a system administrator.

I checked the messages emitted during system start up and I did not see any failure. Also, I switched to a different console trying ctrl-alt-f3 and I was able to see a login screen, but I was not able to log into the system, because no accounts were created at that time, not even the root account. I am unable to provide any logs because I do not have access to that installed system.

If you have suggestions, how I could collect some data for you, please tell me.


This isn't Silverblue specific, nor is it GDM that's failing, it's gnome-initial-setup. Check the Workstation tests, they all failed the same way. I am filing a g-i-s bug for this at present.

Oh, thanks for the info.
