User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6
Description of problem:
X startup fails on FC4 after upgrading using yum.
The machine worked well with FC3 but a few days ago I uppgraded to FC4. The machine still worked well so I did a yum update. Yesterday I rebooted, after that X11 fails at startup with a garbled display.
Output from /sbin/lspci -vvn and the logfile /var/log/Xorg.0.log are attached
The problem is the same running under the kernels 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Booting the system
Actual Results: Garbled display
Expected Results: Login window should be visible at the centre of my display
The system is practically useless as it stands (I can log into it using ssh)
One of the problems being that yum/rpm lacks a revert to earlier version option.
rpm --oldpackage isn't safe for applications like X11 where config files might be converted during an upgrade.
