Re: gnome-shell 3.26 fedora 27 crashes all the time

That bug sure looks like the bug which is killing me. I'm going to wait for the patch to make it through Fedora 27 updates and see if gnome-shell keeps crashing...

Just a guess.

I know this is not the place to post this message, but I'm desperate. I
upgraded to fedora 27 which upgraded me from gnome 3.24 to 3.26. After
the upgrade, gnome-shell just crashes a lot. I saw somewhere in
bugzilla, after I reported the gnome-shell crash through the
auto-crash-report utility, that this gnome-shell crashing was considered
a fedora 27 release block but then the fedora 27 release team decided
against blocking the release due to this bug.

The bug is bad enough that I've had to switch desktops, (I'm using
cinnamon now).

So I was wondering if you guys know about this problem with fedora 27
and if so, do you have any suggestions as to how to push the Fedora 27
team to fix this problem. Or is this a gnome-shell problem that one
needs to submit to the gnome development team?

Any help is greatly appreciated.


P.S. gnome-shell crashes when I open up a new window. I run a 3 monitor
setup using the nvidia propitiatory driver. The system was solid under
fedora 26/gnome 3.24.

I've turned off all the extensions to see if that makes a difference. I have not removed the extensions, just turned them off.
