Hi, today i did an update of the system, then reboot in order to make effective all the updates. Seems that was all ok. Insert my user password then hit enter and........the system, kind of it rebooted itself. Instead of showing the desktop, starts just right before plymouth routine is called again, then loads up the log in screen and if i enter again the pass, it comes back to call the plymouth again. The only thing that i can remember that got updated is the linux kernel. I know that it is version 4.10.10. If i order to reboot, the system reboots ok, calls grub, but it get stucked on the same sequence. It doesn't matter if i choose to load kernel version 4.10.10, or 4.10.9 or 4.10.9 or the safe boot(can't remember the right name) I'v got fedora 25 with gnome installed

Hi, This happened to me today as well after my update #436 to fedora 25 this morning. I experience this problem when I am trying to login using gnome.xorg or the plasma desktop. If I use the wayland login then the desktop opens as it should. Are using gnome classic or the old xorg version of gnome?

Thanks Noel, I was starting from "Gnome", then, after reading your comment, i did changed it to "Gnome (wayland)" and it worked. But just for checking it, logged out and then tried to log in using wayland and the same happened. The OS was needing a reboot and then, i can log in using wayland

The same thing happened to me. In my case, I found that the update to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.14-1.fc25.x8664 was the problem. Upgrading to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.14-2.fc25.x8664 from bodhi fixed it.

The update to xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-1.0.14-2.fc25 was pushed to the Fedora update repository this morning..
