Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I had installed kernel 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5 .However, when i tried to boot my pc
with this kernel, the boot process stops.
The screen remains black, and after a few minutes, it's still black. The system
did not freezed.
Resetting the pc is the only way to boot to kernel-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.
My pc is an AMD SEMPRON 3000+ with 1 GB mem, an NVIDIA 128Mb grafics card
Maxtor 80Gb HD.
My pc is as following:
HP ProLiang ML110 G4 with Pentium D 2.8G + 1G mem + 160G ST3160812AS HD +
Matrox G200e graphics card
What's the last message you can see before the screens turn black (If possible) ?
I'm also having the same problem.
My machine is an IBM Intellistation A PRO, dual Opteron 285 2.6GHz, 8GB mem,
160GB SATA 7.2K HD, NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 256MB, running Fedora Core 5 for x86_64.
I believe the graphics card driver is the problem but I haven't updated it yet.
You're using the driver from nvidia ?
No, i did not user the nvidia drivers, although i have got an Nvidia
graphics card..: NVIDIA GF4 MX 400
Has any body sorted out this problem with the FC5 kernel 2.6.18-1.2200. If so,
please let me know how.
some boot command line options to try.. (try them one at a time)
Updated to kernel 2.6.18-1.2239, boot is ok
