There is a problem after the upgrade from Feora 27 to Fedora 29. After some moment GNOME freezes and I have to use reboot. Sometimes GNOME crashes by himself.
After some empirical observations, it seems to me that what happens during high loads: a lot of firefox windows, video.
Also, how to fix the cause of the problem, look at the logs?

journalctl -eb-1 run as root will open logs at the end of last session. gnome-logs, run also as root, shows same logs in a GUI.

Fisrt has showed "CTRL-EVENT-SIGNAL-CHANGE above=0 signal=-9999 noise=9999 txrate=0". As I understand it's related with wireless network. It's additional problem and I plan to solve it later. Second has showed "GLib-CRITICAL: g_child_watch_add_full: assertion 'pid > 0' failed" and "Cannot access vdagent virtio channel /dev/virtio-ports/com.redhat.spice.0".

try "dnf downgrade gnome-shell", which will revert the version installed to the base version of F29. Check if it happens there too.

@rdtcustomercare, It doesn't help. Nevertheless, gnome-logs has showed me two new messages: kvm: disabled by bios and nouveau 0000:01:00.0: bus: MMIO read of 00000000 FAULT at 3e6684 [ IBUS ].

You don't need KVM and vdagent, unless you're using virtual machines.

As for nouveau, update your question with inxi -SMGxxxoutput.
