2016-12-01 10:39:20 -0500 commented answer I'm getting the error "Failed to start Load Kernel Modules." on boot after updating to kernel 3.15.8. Anyone has a clue what is happening?

same problem here as Przemek after updating Fedora 25 yesterday to kernel 4.8.10. systemctl status systemd-modules-load doesnt show errors. The ouput of the above command: [leydekker@xxxxxx~]$ rpm -qa "kmod" dkms kmod-libs-23-1.fc25.x86_64 kmod-23-1.fc25.x86_64

Yes I did a clean install Askat. Several times in fact, but with the same result every time. Thank you for responding.

Sorry I wasnt clear enough in my question. I wasn't upgrading using F22 but did a clean install upgrade, just to prevent probs with left-over software. But I did use NVIDIA driver in F22. Due to the low resolution boot and the visible startup commands when booting I decided to use the nouveau driver in F23. Without success though. Nevertheless a very interesting respons you gave. I certainly will test this next week. I learned a lot today. To be able to do some work I use my Tumbleweed laptop for a while, hoping to catch up with F23 soon. Thanks very much Xenitho.

Thank you for your answer Kohane. I indeed am using Gnome. After a few clean installations the problems are still persisting. But .. banging randomly on the keyboard out of pure frustration taught me there does exist a key-combination that can get you out of the freeze. Something like SuperKey+A (or neighbour key). I still have to find out exactly. It's a bypass of course but it can save time, prevent anger en redoing work done.

I upgraded from 22 to 23 yesterday. Fedora 23 looks really good, but .... my system does freeze constantly. There is no other way than a hard reset to escape from this situation. A situation that never occurred on the same machine under Fedora 22.

My system: Intel Core i7-4771, RAM 16Gb, Graphics: NVIDIA GK106 (GeForce GTX 660). Display server: Fedora 117.3, drivers nouveau,

Anyone out there having the same probs and maybe have a solution? I am unable to use Fedora 23 this way, and I consider going back to 22.

2015-06-25 09:07:03 -0500 commented answer invalid magic number; you need to load the kernel first

Thank you for the response bit4man. I managed to have a valid grub entry for 4.0.5 back again. I could generate the initramfs-4.0.5-* file following your lines. The config-4.0.5-* and the vmlinuz-4.0.5-* file I copied from a fedora 22 virtual machine. To my surprise that worked. Uninstalling the NVidia drivers failed, so I had to reinstall them again. But.. rereading your lines I understand now I have to fix the former kernel (4.0.4) first. Thanks again for your help.

I messed up trying to boot fedora 22 in a higher resolution after installing NVIDIA drivers. Probably i ran dracut -f with the wrong file. Booting kernel-4.0.5-300.fc22.x86_64 from the menu gives the message: error invalid magic number; you need to load the kernel first'. I removed vmlinuz-4.0.5* from /boot and tried to reinstall, but it says ' Package is already installed, skipping. Any idea how i get a valid entry for 4.0.5 back in the grub menu? An older kernel still works.
