It looks like GRUB can't find your initramfs files. Can you boot into rescue mode or use a rescue disk to get into Fedora and provide the output of:


ls /boot

I believe that package managers keep your most recent kernels so that you can boot using an older kernel in case something went wrong with a newer one. So when you updated your kernel you probably lost one of your older kernels from that list. My guess is that that older kernel is the one you've been booting into all this time and that you just need to update grub to use your current set of kernels.

This looks similar to my problem:

The problem was a bad (not broken) symlink for This happened after updating the nvidia drivers recently. Can you try removing and pointing it to nvidia/ ?

sudo rm /usr/lib64/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/nvidia/ /usr/lib64/

Make sure to take a backup first, or remember where was originally pointing.

It looks like mono has a guide already on setting up parallel mono environments. If you compile mono to a separate directory, you can use the binaries and libs there instead:

So it turns out that the problem was a broken symlink when the nvidia drivers updated. I completely reinstalled the nvidia drivers ( ) and fixed the symlink by pointing it to the nvidia libGL instead: sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/nvidia/ /usr/lib64/

2015-06-15 12:13:52 -0500 asked a question Black screen after login

Hey guys, I tried logging in this morning and was welcomed with a black screen (cursor still showed). I swapped over to another tty and noticed that kwin was stuck running at 100%, but when I tried to replace it it complained about a fatal error. Things were working fine last night, but here's some changes that happened recently:

  • updated akmod-nvidia
  • noticed Fedora (4.0.4-202.fc21.x86_64) 21 added to the grub list

So far I can login by booting into the old Fedora (3.19.5-200.fc21.x86_64) 21, and choosing KDE Plasma Failsafe login. I tried downgrading akmod-nvidia to 346.72-1, but the problem still persisted.

Any ideas? Thank you

I'm not sure if I understand your suggestion. I tried deleting my current mono package (2.x) as well as banshee. This allowed me to update mono from the mono repository; however when I tried to reinstall banshee it complained about my mono version. It seems like I need both versions of mono in order to make this work. Is it possible to get something like this to work?

To the moderator deleting my question: You are assuming that this is a duplicate of this which actually is not a fix for my issue here. I think this may be unrelated, unless you've found a different duplicate?

2015-06-13 21:44:03 -0500 asked a question dependency resolution

Hey guys, I'm dealing with a dependency issue with yum. I have a project which requires me to update mono (>=3.2.8), but I think another application depends on an earlier version of mono:

Following I've created the repository file, /etc/yum.repos.d/download.mono-project.com_repo_centos_.repo

name=added from:

And attempted to clean yum and update so that I could update mono. It looks like banshee requires a specific version of mono-addins which is blocking mono from updating?

 sudo yum clean all

 sudo yum update
