Fedora 19's been doing this intermittently on my machines for months.
More so on the little Dell1520 laptop.
There are no error messages and nothing in the logs.
I just restart.
Wait a minute!
I've had occasional problems in which F19 gets to a certain point and
then "fails out" of the GUI. I get a message saying that Plymouth has
failed. Then it goes for a few more processes and seems to sit there--in
Last time that happened, I tried restarting. Seven failed restarts
later, I just left it alone for half an hour. And then, though it
"failed out" of Plymouth, it eventually got to a login screen--while
paging to beat the band almost the whole time. And that session went on
with everything taking five times as long as usual--again while paging
constantly. As if it had to repair the journal, perhaps. And after that,
the delays went away.
I thought my hardware was at fault. But I ran hardware diagnostics. My
CPU, memory, and drive all passed.
