While playing a game a few days ago, steam crashed my computer. It then rebooted into grub, where I then booted into fedora 38, with the default kernel. After entering my encrypted LUKS password, I then tried to login as myself. After I (correctly) enter my credentials, it goes to a black screen and disconnects from my bluetooth speaker. I have tried rebooting into different kernels, and entering different users. Each time, the same problem follows me. I’ve been able to enter into different users, but it’s always the same thing with my user, and eventually the other users encounter the same problem. This bug has followed me to no end.
I even completely flashed a new version of fedora 38, yes a complete re-install, and even it didn’t work; eventually succumbing to the same glitch. I’m fresh out of ideas, and at the limits of my patience with this.
My hardware: AMD Rx 5700xt, AMD Ryzen 5600g, random realtek wifi chip, and a broadcom wifi chip from an old mac.
Fedora is Fedora 38 with KDE. It’s pretty vanilla, since this problem PERSISTS across different installations, users, and kernels.
Please help. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I use fedora on my corebooted chromebook that has the most random, proprietary hardware and spews errors out the ass, and it works better now than on my desktop. I have no idea what the problem might be, I’ve even gone into the command line mode and created new users, just to login as them and try again. The same thing happens. I can dump logs, do whatever, but can someone please help? Thanks for making it through this wall of text.
-persists across kernels, users, and a new installation
-can be averted temporarily, by creating new users, but eventually happens again, usually after playing a game on steam on installing a new application
-It keeps happening. Over, and over, and over again. I think it must be something with my hardware? Some random bios setting? I’ve reset my bios, and my hardware is just a generic AMD build.
-fedora seems to work literally anywhere else but my computer. I’ve never had any problems like this before.
edit: just did a full re-install, but installed to a usb stick instead of a normal drive. It fails too, so if anyone want’s it as a .iso file, you can have it.
