With this update, my computer boots but the screen stays black (no visible gdm). When I ssh in from another machine, gdm says it's running. I don't see anything significant in the journal. Booting into the previous kernel-4.19.8-300.fc29.x86_64 works.

It's a custom PC with an ASUS H87I-PLUS motherboard and an ASUS Radeon RX 560 graphics card.

Looked through the journal again and noticed the error this time. The amdgpu driver is failing to load. I have opened a bug. #1659810

Boot hangs at the Plymouth error screen (I think, its two orange dots and a white dot in the middle of the screen).

linux-firmware needs to be updated, kernel needs to be updated to require the newer version of linux-firmware
