After installing updates on Fedora 19 (kernel 10.3.7-200.fc19.x86_64) the DE freezes whenever I log in. Using the virtual consoles doesn't work. One time I even got this kernel panic:

enter image description here

I have other kernels to try (10.3.5 and 10.3.3) and on them I don't get the freezes or the kernel panics.

Can you help me?

  • You should file a bug report. Looks like a bug in the bcrm80211 drivers. – jordanm Aug 20 '13 at 18:09
  • how? sorry for my small knowledge... – Magnus Aug 20 '13 at 18:18
  • Is there no way I can undo the kernel upgrade? – Magnus Aug 20 '13 at 18:22
  • You can remove the kernel package if you still have other working kernels available. You can find instructions for filing a bug report here. – jordanm Aug 20 '13 at 18:25
  • how would I remove the kernel package? yum remove pkgname? I obviously can do tty before I log in (grafically). – Magnus Aug 20 '13 at 18:54

There is obviously a unfixed bug with the broadcom wifi driver. I reported the problem and did

sudo yum remove kernel-3.10.7

Now I'm on the old kernel and waiting for the fix to come.
