After kernel update, boot up hangs

hello all. So here's a screencap of what happens when I boot up using the latest kernel:


I can boot up normally in the installation kernel but not in the two latest kernel updates.

Some system specs:
x86 64-bit
evga GTX 550 Ti

Is it something about the display manager? Or is it LSB?

Neither..

There was an update not too long ago that installed a packaged called trousers as a dependency. Trousers starts TCSD by default, but if your machine doesn't have a TPM chip, then it can't run.

To fix it...

Code:
su -
(root password)

systemctl disable tcsd.service

Re: After kernel update, boot up hangs

I have the same error message, But I am able to boot .

you can check for errors in /var/log/messages

To track why the kernel is not booting.

Re: After kernel update, boot up hangs

What sort of graphics card are you using? I tend to get this when the kernel is upgraded but the nvidia kernel module is the previous one, so X cannot start.

Re: After kernel update, boot up hangs

Are you using the nvidia binary driver? If so, how did you install it?

Re: After kernel update, boot up hangs

it looks like its hanging after starting the display manager. Why not reinstall the nvidia drivers?
