Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471492
Can't start _with_ nomodeset
Last modified: 2009-01-05 14:59:16 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to fix an "xorg is getting slower and slower problem", I tried to boot with the nomodeset kernel option.
I could see the plymouth text boot sequence and then saw aretefacts all over the screen, hung, instead of gdm.
Had to do a hard reboot as the keyboard was unresponsive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always with nomodeset option

I forgot to mention that I don't have any /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

get the newest kernel from koji, we had a mistake in 101.
Could boot with nomodeset with latest kernel, thanks.
