you want to use nouveau? if so, then you may need to put a ticket in so they know it broke on the kernel in question. if not, try getting to your second console at ctrl-alt f2 and see if you can remove nouveau, and instel the nvidia driver. I run proprietary, with dkms updates on kernel upgrades, and have 387.34 running on 4.14.5 with no issues.

Ok I tried just hitting F2 and no go... I love fedora I been using Linux for a long time and tried Fedora and change over fast. I hope I get this problem fixed or I will have to start all over again. Hope they fix it because the only kernel that works will be wiped out and my system will be dead if the new one doesn't work. I may not love Fedora too much and do something else I don't want to. Fedora rocks when it works right...

not just f2 but Ctrl-Alt F2 to get to a tty console. You could also put nomodeset in your linux commandline in grub, by hitting e on the grub menu and modify the command line entry put nomodeset=0 in front of the word quiet on the command line, then use ctrl-x to start that grub. you will get a low resolution graphic desktop, and can then use a terminal window to do sudo dnf remove *nouveau* and then reinstall the nvidia driver. if you use the nvidia proprietary run file to install put -Z after the word run, and that forces nvidia to disable nouveau for you, once and for all.

[root@localhost-localdomaininsane jack]# sudo dnf remove nouveau Error: Problem: The operation would result in removing the following protected packages: kernel-core

I tried the grub command line and no go....

Is there any way to remove the two last kernel updates and try to update again? or could it be me running a core duo 2.50 processor?

Solved Download your Nvidia driver hit Ctrl-Alt F2 to get to a tty console log on as Super User su, enter password, this was not easy because the TTY console was blinking so entering the password was a timing thing for me it may take a few mins. Install the downloaded Nvidia driver. That's it. I am Happy again! I just updated to 300.6 no problem.
