    Fedora 30 freezes on boot at WPA supplicant stage

    When booting my laptop, which is running Fedora 30 on kernal 5.2.7, it freezes when it gets to WPA supplicant saying:

    [ OK ] Started WPA supplicant

    But doesn't proceed any further. If anyone has a solution to this please let me know.

    Is this after an upgrade? Can you boot an older kernel from the grub screen?

    I loaded 5.0.9 and the same was happening.

    Can you boot in to rescue mode from grub? If so you can do a normal boot which will fail, then boot to rescue mode and use "journalctl --list-boots" to get a list of previous boot attempts and then "jornalctl -b <N>" or journalctl -b <ID>" where <N> or <ID> is the attempt from the first command you want the logs for. As you've just failed a boot using -1 for N should show you the errors.

    WPA supplicant
    is related to ur wireless card, if the rescue mode work, so u will need to disable the wirelles card module on grub to check
