Hi Jerome

After ssh login: sudo su (with your own password) then you get a root shell (#) now you can change the password with passwd

The Nvidia driver 340.98 (September 26, 2016) should work with fc25 if you downgrade Xorg to the fc24 version according to https://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...

Fedora 25 Xorg 1.19 is supported only by nVidia 375.20 drivers, if you want to install example 340.xx or 304.xx then you have to downgrade Xorg to Fedora 24 version.

dnf --releasever=24 downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg --allowerasing

Then add following row to /etc/dnf/dnf.conf file:

exclude=xorg-x11*

Thank you FranciscoD! After the last time GDM worked about 5 updates flew by. The system was distro-synced after my upgrade as adviced. Today still up-to-date. I have restarted gdm.service a dozen times after each update; the errors persist.

After the update to kernel 3.7.7 i can no longer login. The screen blinks 4 or 5 times and no gdm. This shows up in the gdm-slave log;

gdm-simple-slave[1537]: WARNING: Failed to give slave programs access to the display. Trying to proceed. gdm-launch-environment][1552]: pam_unix(gdm-launch-environment:session): session opened for user gdm by (uid=0) gdm-launch-environment][1552]: pam_unix(gdm-launch-environment:session): session closed for user gdm gdm-simple-slave[1537]: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_ref: assertion object->ref_count > 0' failed gdm-simple-slave[1537]: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_unref: assertionobject->ref_count > 0' failed and in the messages; dbus-daemon[803]: dbus[803]: [system] Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.4" (uid=0 pid=841 comm="/usr/sbin/gdm-binary ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" member="GetAll" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.56" (uid=0 pid=1633 comm="/usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave --display-id /org/gn")

And in the messages;

dbus-daemon[803]: dbus[803]: [system] Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.4" (uid=0 pid=841 comm="/usr/sbin/gdm-binary ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" member="GetAll" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.56" (uid=0 pid=1633 comm="/usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave --display-id /org/gn")

Xorg finishes without errors, i'm using the intel GPU
