No one have this problem except me? In this case it must be a failure by
upgrading from FC6 to Rawhide...
Comment 2 Valentin Guggiana 2007-05-09 10:15:53 EDT
I even cannot see any message. My Dell Inspiron 9400 simply freezes with blank
screen booting kernel 2.6.21-1.3116.fc7
Comment 3 Steve 2007-05-10 04:52:11 EDT
Switching back to kernel-2.6.20-1.3104.fc7.i686 from FC6.93 solves the Problem.
Comment 4 Steve 2007-05-10 05:36:51 EDT
I made a "rpm -Uhv --oldpackage kernel-2.6.20-1.3104.fc7.i686.rpm" (with
kernel-headers). After booting the kernel-2.6.20-1.3104, I installed the
kernel-2.6.21-1.3116.fc7, booted in it and the problem is gone.
