Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 182214
Black Screen after First Run
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Not sure what component this will fall under.
Description of problem:
After succesfull install, and after completing the first run wizard, the system
hangs on a black screen. Unable to switch to a console, the system is completly
unresposive. Only thing to do is hard reset.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 5 test 3 install from HTTP source
Only tried it once, but this should not happen at all.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora Core 5 test 3 from HTTP site
2. Reboot System into first run
3. Create user Accont
4. Set Time
5. Set SElinux up as Permissive
6. Complete Wizard, Click Finish
Screen goes black, system hangs.
GDM should appear to prompt me to login.
Reseting the system no longer shows the first run wizar, it simply boots into a
black screen after the graphical boot is complete.
This is a Brand New Dell PowerEdge 2800 which is being used for nothing at the
moment. So I decided to try out Fedora Core 5 test 3 on it.
It's a single Intel Xeon 3.0 GHz with Physical Address Extension, 1.5 GB RAM
Dell's PERC raid controller.
Configure the machine to boot into runlevel 3 instead of 5, by editing
Once you've done that, run "system-config-display --reconfig" as root, and
attempt to start the X server by typing "startx". Please indicate the
results, and attach your X server config file and long file as individual
uncompressed file attachments using the link below.
Thanks in advance.

I was able to get it running following the instructions you provided. I've
attached the files you requested.
I too have the exact same problem using the fc5 tst3 x64 build. Is there a
simple way of booting onto single mode and fixing this problem ? I'd rather not
edit the xconfig files but get to a point where I could run the xconfig utils to
fix it. Is this possible or am I stuck manually editing the config files?

Does this mean the problem no longer occurs?
If this problem is still present in Fedora Core 5, with all available
updates applied, please file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component.
Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new
bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the
centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes
that become available for consideration in future updates.
