Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 111362
Graphic Interface will not start
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
The latest update to the Fedora Core has rendered the use of my KyroII
video card useless. The error reported from the server log is that it
cannot find the powervr module. This is just wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest release of the Fedora Core kernel update and initscripts.
Enter startx and the Xserver crashes with an error that it cannot find
the powervr module
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile and install powervr driver for Kyro based systems
2. Change XF86Config to reflect the new card.
3. stop and start xserver. CRASH city because it claims it cannot find
the powervr module.
No graphic interface in supporting this card and driver.
It should work. This worked in the earlier Fedora Core 1 release, but
your latest kernel build and initscripts have caused this driver to
stop working altogether.
Please note that this problem did not occur in the earlier relase of
the Fedora Core, though that release did have problems. Please see bug
