There is 3 kernel version in my Fedora 32 based desktop: 5.7.15, 5.7.16 and 5.8.4

Multi kernels

At the time when I was using 5.7.16, I've installed and configured to work with docker, virtualbox and nvidia driver. Everything work well. Then, I upgrade system and get kernel 5.8.4 comes.

Now, it could not boot into kernel 5.8.4, while other kernels still work normally.

enter image description here

What's the problem? Please give me advise or some keywords for further investigation. Thanks.

The grub file content:

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=UUID=44ce178f-8763-44a4-8056-d4590d6550a1 rhgb quiet systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau"
  • please add single or emergency in the kernel line for this new kernel and check if it can boot to single-mode or emergency -mode. then we can maybe troubleshoot and find the issue. docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora/rawhide/… – binarysta Sep 5 '20 at 11:17
  • thank you, I'm not very familiar with grub. The issue seems relate to nvidia driver compatibility. It may get fixed in the next updates. – Dong Nguyen Sep 5 '20 at 13:49

As I predicted before, the problem has been fixed with the latest update from Nvidia and linux kernel. Today I upgrade the kernel to 5.8.9 then install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.66, everything works well now.
