Since update from 4.0.6-300 to 4.0.7-300 Boot fail always.

Currently I am using Fedora 22 with manual boot selection with 4.0.6-300

My doubt is once again it is Nvidia issue with Fedora OR Fedora issue with Nvidia. {It is very disappointing that since I am using Fedora (My favourite Linux) I always facing problem with Nvidia, it is like Fedora and Nvidia are born enemy to each other}.

There's more than one way to install the nVidia drivers, and some are easier to update than others. Which one did you use?

I installed it from RPM Fusion, both akmod and kmod.

By “boot fail,” do you mean that the graphical login screen does not appear? Does Control+Alt+F6 still give you a text login?

Use dnf list installed kmod-nvidia to find out if you have the proper version installed for 4.0.6-300. If not, we'll need to look into why akmod-nvidia didn't build it.

Yes, boot fail mean no graphical login screen. But there is many text on the screen instead of graphical login screen. Left portion display "OK" and right portion some information like started _________ service, waiting for _________ service ("______" means service name). After all service are started and all are OK, nothing happen (nothing happen means I waiting for 15 minutes highest). And no key button work it need to power button press on CPU to power off. Not tried Control+Alt+F6.

...and there's your answer: there's no kmod-nvidia installed for your newest kernel. Try updating your system again and see if it includes the missing kmod. If not, run (as root) akmods --force and see if it builds the module. If not, let us know what the error message is so that we can find out why not.

I was having the same issue with the graphical login going from 4.0.7-300 to 4.0.8-300. I booted back into 4.0.7-300 and then specified the new kernel in akmods

sudo akmods --force --kernels 4.0.8-300.fc22.x86_64

Rebooted and now able to get the graphical login with 4.0.8-300.
