Description of problem:
I'm a bit of a Linux virgin, which is probably a good reason to stay clear of Alphas anyway, but oh well. After running the install DVD for the alpha of Fedora 9 (which all appears to go smoothly), Fedora appears to start up (Blue Splash screen with info on start up procedures) but after this, my monitor goes blank, bar the cursor and a few squiggly lines at the top. The only think i can link this too is a problem i had when trying F8 on a PS3, which turned out to be linked to a problem with the Graphics Drivers.
No idea if any of this will help, and if there's anything else i can do to help, just ask and i'll try my best.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F9alpha via install DVD from Fedoraproject website.
2. Start up machine, following all procedures untill after the blue splash.
Malfunctioning output: Cursor visible but all else is black apart from a few distorted pixels at the top.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
