NVidia driver issues still persist (see next blog post), but I finally debugged (and disabled) the acpi consistent errors that had be plaguing me in F27, but now were leading to kernel CPU errors and hangs.

I added a kernel boot param to my Grub2 commandline.

  • acpi=off

I did it temporarily 1st then permanently with

Editing a Grub2 Menu Entry

(see https://docs.fedoraproject.org/f28/system-administrators-guide/kernel-module-driver-configuration/Working_with_the_GRUB_2_Boot_Loader.html)

If required to prepare a new GRUB 2 file with different parameters, edit the values of the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX key in the /etc/default/grub file.
Add the parameter:

  • acpi=off

right after 'quiet'

Note that you can specify multiple parameters for the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX key. For example:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600n8"

Where console=tty0 is the first virtual terminal and console=ttyS0 is the serial terminal to be used.

Changes to /etc/default/grub require rebuilding the grub.cfg file as follows:

  • On BIOS-based machines, issue the following command as root:

~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
  • On UEFI-based machines, issue the following command as root:

~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

  Now at least I can boot to Cinnamon. Gnome-wayland still does not startup. I believe it is the nouveau drivers having issues with wayland.

I am going to try the NVIDIA driver. Install instructions: at If Not True Then False
