I also had not been able to get a 3-15 kernel to boot-up/display the Gnome
desktop (Lenovo X200, Intel graphics).

I had tried my usual tricks:
1. boot with enforcing=0
2. switch to a VT, run "telinit 3" and then "telinit 5".

I noticed that "ps" seemed to be reporting that all was well: all the
obvious processes were running, but I did notice more than the usual number
of pulseaudio processes.

I also noticed shutdown hanging on "saving sound state" (or some such).

I tried again with the latest  kernel
(kernel-3.15.0-0.rc1.git4.1.fc21.x86_64), and when I reached the "black
screen" state, I switch to a VT, and as root killed all the pulseaudio
processes ('killall -9 pulseaudio'). Within about 5-10 seconds, I got the
gdm-greeter login screen. System hung (black screen) again after entering
password, so I switched to VT and again killed the pulseaudio processes
with 'killall -9 pulseaudio'.  Apparently the "new ones" were spawned by
login process.

Lo and behold, got my gnome desktop (of course, no sound).

I have absolutely no idea what relationship pulsaudio/sound has to
gdm/gnome/shutting down.

Anyone have any ideas/thoughs?
