Hi! When I try to login in my pc, it fails and it always returns to the login page.‎ More precisely, after I have written the password and pressed enter, I view a black screen with some writings (they disappear too fast to be read); then it always returns to the login page.‎ I found out that I can press Ctrl+Al+F2 and login successfully from CLI. By using "startx" from there, it works. How can I start the system without needing this workaround?‎ (It is a fresh installed Fedora25)

can you provide a list of the hardware you have? can you also try doing an dnf update -y and reboot and try to log-in again?

I have already updated the pc to check if the problem was solved. The problem is still here. I have a packard bell netbook dot s: if you need further information, tell me. (i'm searching a command to get full hardware information :)) p.s. I don't know if it could be related: when i log in using the CLI it tries to change directory to my home directory, but it says "change directory failed: Permission denied".  So it remains with "/" as current folder. Maybe some scripts don't work because of this?‎

Your home folder could have permissions changed to root or something else and that is why you get that error try ls -laht /home

here the output

bash-4.3$ ls -laht /home totale 28K drwxr-xr-x. 38 rosto rosto 4,0K 7 giu 12.43 rosto dr-xr-xr-x. 21 root root 4,0K 19 mag 07.47 .. drwx------. 2 root root 16K 9 apr 22.18 lost+found drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4,0K 3 feb 2016 .

I tried to change permissions of the folder using "chown", so everyone could read/write/execute the home folder. This didn't solve the problem. Any other ideas?
