I recently updated F26 to F27, worked with no issue.

The machine I use has a nvidia card (see below for the relevant output of lspci). I'm using the negativo drivers. Everything worked on F26.

When I log in after a normal boot, I can get to Gnome shell with no issue. But if the screen locks, I'm unable to log back in. There is a spinning circle, and nothing happens.

I've tried to go to another tty and use loginctl unlock-sessions but it doesn't seem to work.

I'm not sure where to look to start debugging this. Any ideas?

Are there some hints in journal? Following command will display latest 1000 entries in journal and go at the end of the log:

journalctl -n 1000 -e

The university network is under, hmmm, some pressure, so most of my journal is attempted connexions from China.
