How i can fix this hardware issue:

nouveau 0000:01:00.0: i2c: aux 0004: begin idle timeout ffffffff

. I have fedora 29. I have those graphic cards:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 630 (rev 04)

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106M [GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile] (rev a1)

Thank you

remove nouveau and go with an nvidia driver. The nvidia drivers should support optimus, allowing to you select which display to use.

After I'm following that guide I'm getting:

Ok Started GNOME Display Manager.

And the notebook is not starting. Don't do anything.

can you go to tty2 with Ctrl-Alt-F2 and login as root? if so, then run and post dmesg output here. sounds like the integrated video may be causing problems with the nvidia card.
