Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431856
Alpha Live CD's do not boot to X
Last modified: 2018-04-11 03:26:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora 9 Alpha Live (standard and KDE) i386 CDs do not boot on an HP 8510p
laptop (practically brand new).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the iso files (using torrent)
2. Burn the CD's
3. boot the CD's
Each illustrates the same behavior: progress is displayed (without X) and the
text login is briefly displayed and then the laptop screen remains blank
(overnight in my test case) while awaiting some X activity.
