I've installed the latest Fedora 20 release. It's working only after the initial login. I do some some software install in GNOME desktop. - VLC Player - Amarok - Skype Everything is perfect while running. But when the system is restarted it's just stuck at logo fill. No login screen appears. Here's a screenshot of the stuck point in command line. Even the rescue mode can not load login screen.

Please help.

Apparently, you don't need NFS (else, you would know you need it...). So just disable nfs services : ~ systemctl list-unit-files |grep nfs and for all services marked 'enabled', disable ~ sudo systemctl disable nfs.service ~ sudo systemctl disable nfslock.service ~ sudo systemctl disable nfs-server.service ... (note: if you don't have sudo permission, run the "systemctl disable <service-name> " commands as root user). </service-name>

Thanks. This worked fine. Now I can login to the system. I found following from a web site and posting it here as a useful reference.

disable NFS services

# chkconfig nfslock off
# chkconfig rpcgssd off
# chkconfig rpcidmapd off
# chkconfig portmap off
# chkconfig nfs off

remove nfs-utils pkg - I did not execute this although

yum remove portmap nfs-utils

"Reached target Network Filesystem Server". Is there some NFS mounting going on? If so and not configured properly it will hang, sometimes for as long as 5 minutes, then it will finish booting.

Were there recent updates? If so, you may have graphics driver issues.

You should be able to switch to a virtual terminal to do some diagnostics. Use CTRL/ALT/F1 through CTRL/ALT/F6.

I'm using my home pc. Then I think NFS is not needed(?). I'm new to linux and would like to know how to disable it from command line. There were not any updates. Only did above apps installation. How could I disable NFS mounting???

By the way. I'm using fedora as a dual boot system. There are Windows 7 partitions. Will that be a problem in NFS?
