i used the Kernel- an all was fine.

Today (Sa. 06-24-2006) i made a "yum -y update"
and the new Kernel-2.6.17-1.2139_FC5 an boot it.

I can see the GraphicBoot but at change to Login Screen
the Display goes BLACK, and thats it.
I cant change to Console (STRG+ALT+F1).

I tryed to boot in Runlevel 3, all fine.

I start the X-Server with startx, and the same
problem. X-Server goes black, freez.

please see the LogFile: Xorg.0.log

I've got similar problem. The same system with 2133 works fine and
with 2139 X session freezes a few moments after logging into KDE
session. It's on Thinkpad T42p.

Same here. After disabling rhgb i can get to the login screen and login, but if
I logout X hangs with a black screen. After login in less than a minute the
machine hangs. i am using a Thinkpad R50p (ATI Technologies Inc M10 NT [FireGL
Mobility T2])

I've got similar problem. The same system with 2133 works fine and
with 2139 X session freezes a few minutes after logging into GNOME

Comment 6 Davide Rossetti 2006-07-03 12:29:05 UTC
Same for me. It's a Toshiba M40-139 with ATI M300.

booting runlevel 3, I can see lots of ACPI errors. then, doing startx, the PC
locks solid.

xorg-x11-drv-ati.i386 update solved the problem for me, see comment #4

Comment 9 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 20:55:17 UTC
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed.

Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter
can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list
of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a
comment to the bug.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed.  See bug 207474 for further details.

If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.

If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.

Thank you.
