I am running Fedora19 KDE on a Dell laptop with Nvidia graphics. After some update (not sure which one) it no longer boots to KDE login screen. If I press ESC to see the boot messages, the last message is the one mentioned above and it does not show any obvious errors. I can change to another console, then log in and type "startx" and the KDE desktop starts as it should. I have tried removing plymouth and also tried installing the binary nvidia driver, but it makes no difference. Any suggestions?

The problem was solved at a later kernel update and since Fedora 19 is EOL soon, I close this ticket.

The same problem i faced after installing the plymouth solar theme. I think this is a problem among linux updated kernel, plymouth and nvidia graphics driver.

I'm sending you my problem and a useful way to recover this:

I'm using Fedora 19 i686 kernel 3.11.6, intel dual core 2.5 GHz CPU, 3 GB ram, nvidia geforce 8400 gs 512 MB video card.

Plymouth bootsplash screen stops and black screened appears and show the message(i only give last 2 lines):

[ok] Reached Target Multi-user system.

[ok] Reached Target Graphical Interface. (image description)

Then it stuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wait about 5 mins but it remain same, then I press ctrl+alt+del from keyboard and reboot my machine and able to start fedora 19 with same kernel.

* But there is a problem : every time i power on my machine and boot fedora 19 (or reboot) the same problem occur again and i use the same procedure again that i mention.
