Description Pontus Enhager 2009-04-12 15:13:58 EDT
Description of problem:
have tried to boot Fedora-11-{alpha,beta,snap1} but does not manage to get system booted. After SYSlinux message a grey screen turns up with no message or picture in it.

If ESC is pressed a boot prompt shows up (any hint on what to fill in here ? i have been unsuccessful this far)

If any other key is pressed something along the lines of "TAB for alternatives" comes up but nothing happens when pressing tab.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from said live image (present on a USB key)
Actual results:
grey screen, no progress

Expected results:
i wanted to make sure that the NOUVEAU driver works for my setup in F11

please excuse me if i am too clueless for my own best, if i have filed this bug on the wrong component, or if i have provided unsufficient data (of which i can try to be helpful) 

i have tried a few different images {alpha,beta,snap1} and a few different USB hardware units
Comment 1 Pontus Enhager 2009-04-12 15:52:02 EDT
sorry - the "any" key part above should read "TAB key"
Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2009-04-13 01:01:32 EDT
Did you create the liveusb on a f10 system?

This won't work. You can upgrade syslinux from rawhide and it should then make a functioning live usb. 'yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux' 

Or just burn the images to media and they should work.
Comment 3 Pontus Enhager 2009-04-13 13:07:14 EDT
yep i created the image via the liveusb-creator tool in F10
ok - so i guess that this is a non valid bug then - sorry for the fuzz
