This page documents common bugs in Fedora 30 and, if available, fixes or workarounds for these problems. If you find your problem in this page, do not file a bug for it, unless otherwise instructed. Where appropriate, a reference to the current bug(s) in Bugzilla is included.

Pre-release version
Fedora 30 has not yet been released. During this pre-release period, this page will cover known issues in the Fedora 30 pre-releases. Issues that are fixed will be removed from the page once a fix is available (for instance, an issue that affects the Beta but is fixed in the final release will be removed at the time of that release).

Release Notes

Read the F30_Beta_release_announcement for specific information about changes in Fedora 30 and other general information.

My bug is not listed

Not every bug is listed in this page, but Bugzilla should be a comprehensive database of known bugs. This page is a sampling of the bugs most commonly discussed on our mailing lists and forums.

To see if your bug has already been reported, you can search Bugzilla. If it has not yet been reported, we encourage you to do so to help improve Fedora for yourself and others. A guide to Bugs and feature requests has been prepared to assist you.

If you believe an already-reported bug report should be added to this page because it is commonly encountered, you can:

  • Add it yourself, if you have wiki access. Common bugs instructions provides guidance on how to add an entry to the page correctly, but the most important thing is to make sure that the bug is listed - don't worry if you don't get the format quite right, we can clean it up later.
  • Or, add the CommonBugs keyword to the bug report. Someone from the QA team will then inspect the issue to determine whether the bug should be listed as a common bug. To expedite your request, please add a comment to the bug that includes
    1. a summary of the problem
    2. any known workarounds
    3. an assessment on the impact to Fedora users

For reference, you can query Bugzilla for bugs tagged CommonBugs:

  • CommonBugs? (bugs with CommonBugs keyword, but do not yet have a link to this page)
  • CommonBugs+(bugs with CommonBugs keyword and contain a link to this page)

Workstation issues

'Basic graphics' mode will often fail on Workstation

link to this item - Bugzilla: #1691909 - Bugzilla: #1683197

Due to at least two different problems, trying to boot a Fedora 30 Workstation live image or installed system using the 'basic graphics' option will often fail; when doing a BIOS native boot it will probably always fail, with a UEFI native boot it may work.

Fortunately this option is less commonly needed than it used to be. If you have a system on which it is necessary, you may need to install a different Fedora edition until fixes or workarounds for the problems are available.

Top icon often disappears from dash

link to this item - Bugzilla: #1690429

A bug in GNOME in Fedora 30 Beta means that the icon that should appear at the top of the 'dash' in the overview (the panel of icons for running and/or favorite applications, on the left hand side) does not appear. Only a small horizontal bar will appear - you can interact with this bar as if it were the icon. (Technically, the icon is present, but has been assigned a height of 0, which is why it is not shown). The GNOME developers are working to fix this issue, and we will provide the fix as soon as it is available.

Upgrade issues

Upgrade from Fedora 29 hangs at end of upgrade process, showing "Upgrade complete! Cleaning up and rebooting..."

link to this item - Bugzilla: #1674045

If you upgrade from Fedora 29 to Fedora 30, it is likely that after the upgrade completes, instead of rebooting to Fedora 30 automatically, the system will stop at a screen saying "Upgrade complete! Cleaning up and rebooting..."

If this happens, the upgrade has completed successfully and it is safe to simply reset the system. Fedora 30 should boot automatically and work correctly.
