Screen I could see and You can try.
Sorry for my "English", long description and horrible divided two 0.3 MP cam screen-shot in attachment.
Description of problem:
Cannot unlock blanked screen during WIFI (with access-point sometimes without internet connection) system update. Screen blinks, showing wallpaper & blanking. When pressing power btn, I could see info about blocked action because of some uninterruptable process(it's name isn't mentioned). After hard-button-boot cannot boot into X - screen blinks showing and hiding X screen with mouse cursor only.
Adding option 4 (init level) to kernel in GRUB I can see screen as attached.
I can log-in to text-mode console after pressing Enter.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Alpha 10.91 from liveCD,
2. Maybe lock screen
2. OR: Change "Charging Settings"(or "Energy saving" or sth alike) to blank screen only when notebook case/screen closed
3. Run SYSTEM update next from icon on deskbar( REPOS or sth first)
4. Maybe lock screen
4. OR: Close notebook's case/screen
6. After 2 hrs of WIFI downloading(or not - with maybe interrupted access point)
try to unlock screen
(During this time WiFI downloading might been interrupted,
or there was NO internet connection)
7. Force comp off and boot up
Can You see screen like in attachment? It's horrible ::)
Dell notebook D830
Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Link 4965abgn
(Fedora installed as 2nd OS)
(Fedora Beta have shown a day later)
(There were many updates - over 900 if I remember.)
(My notebook was plugged-in.)
The iwlwiki kernel modules was reloaded hence iwl4965-firmware was requested again. the message you got and related to iwlwifi are normal.
Nothing suggest an error from the firmware side.
You "should have" used Fedora Rawhide Beta at this step. Closing to NOTABUG
Please open another bug related to the kernel component if this problem can be reproduced another time.
