I faced the same problem after running dnf upgrade today.
The issue most certainly is related to selinux-policy-targeted.
That package was also upgraded, alongside with the kernel.
We have 3 options (as a workaround) to solve this problem :

  • Remove the NVIDIA drivers (what you did) and wait until a new fixed selinux package gets released.
  • Downgrade selinux-policy-targeted package -> sudo dnf downgrade selinux-policy-targeted
  • Temporarily disable SELinux or set it to permissive (though this is definitely not recommended).

Update 2018-05-25 : An updated selinux-policy package which includes a fix is already in the works ->
https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?search=selinux-policy current status pending / request testing

Update 2018-05-26 : Now the current status has changed to testing and the request changed to stable. Update 2018-05-27 : The current status has changed to stable, so the final fixed version was released.

setenforce 0 only have effect until next reboot. To determine if you have a SELinux issue, setenforce 0 can be very useful, You will still get the SELinux alert messages if you have that enabled.

@villykruse : You are right, so I've updated that part to make it more clear. Thanks for your contribution. :)

Bug fix released.

You can manually install it or wait when it will be available in 'Stable' repo.

Yay! Can confirm the updated packages work for me.

I logged in over ssh, downloaded the updated selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted RPMs from the linked pages, and installed them manually with rpm. Rebooted and my desktop's back. :D

The same thing happened to me. My whole system became unbootable. I booted into emergency mode and set SELinux method to permissive in /etc/selinux/config After that Fedora booted just fine. If you choose this method do not forget to re-enable SELinux after the fixed policy update is installed.
