Black screen after update

I’ve seen this elsewhere but with no solution other than a reinstall.

I’ve installed Mongo and updated Rocky linux.

On rebooting I get a black screen.

When I go into rescue mode it still works so I thought I should update and reinstall the NVidia drivers.
That didn’t work however.

Any ideas how to fix this. I really don’t want to have to reinstall the machine every time I update.

I’ve uninstalled mongo. It probably wasn’t the issue.

I’m getting the following warning on start up…

[ 1.176732] dracut-pre-udev [408]: libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf line 3: ignoring bad line starting with ‘EOSdracut’

[ 1.176880] dracut-pre-udev [408]: libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf line 5: ignoring bad line starting with ‘d/’

Any ideas?

Errors say that that file contains garbage, well “unexpected text”.

I’d remove it and NVidia’s drivers. Then reinstall NVidia.

Thanks. That worked!
