    New Kernel does not work with Fedora 27 Cinnamon Spin.

    Hi there,

    I have just received the new kernel packages today, through the 'sudo dnf update' command. However, I only listed one below.

    kernel-4.14.3-300.fc27.x86_64.rpm

    However, upon rebooting, my notebook would stopped at 'Started Hostname Services...', forever. Right now, I have to use kernel-4.13xxxxx in order to boot into Cinnamon.

    I hope someone can help.

    Here is more information.
    The kernel that would work is Linux 4.13.16-302.fc27.x86_64
    NVIDIA 304.137
    Compaq Presario F763NR

    I hope someone can help.

    I received big updates today, via 'sudo dnf update'.

    Install 5 Packages
    Upgrade 161 Packages

    Total download size: 354 M

    Upon rebooting, I see my laptop stopped at "Started Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service", not "Started Hostname Services..." any more. However, it is not booting into Cinnamon, still. I need to use Linux 4.13.16-302.fc27.x86_64, in order to use Cinnamon for now.

    No, it is not working yet. I did the typo in the prior post, which I already edited it. The kernel that would get things to work is Linux 4.13.16-302.fc27.x86_64.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    I have done the 'sudo dnf update', just now, and I can see the nvidia version, that you mentioned coming in.
