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 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
Add the parameter:
right after 'quiet'
Note that you can specify multiple parameters for the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX key. For example:
console=tty0 is the first virtual terminal and
console=ttyS0 is the serial terminal to be used.
/etc/default/grub require rebuilding the
grub.cfg file as follows:
On BIOS-based machines, issue the following command as
~]# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
On UEFI-based machines, issue the following command as
~]# 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
