yum log from today update. Can't see what else than kernel could be causing the issue.
Description of problem:
This morning, I updated my system (see the attached yum.log)
Tonight, when I booted, instead of the graphical spinfinity plymouth plugin, I had the text based plymouth boot.
KMS works though, as I had a flicker free boot and VT resolution is the native one from my LCD panel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot on kernel-126.96.36.199-140.fc11.x86_64 => text boot
2. Boot on kernel-188.8.131.52-126.fc11.x86_64 => graphical spinfinity boot
Same here on i586 architecture. Nothing special which x86_64.
Seems to be solved. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=500747
I don't know if that's the same bug, the other one speaks about no more KMS ans I did have KMS, only lost the graphical boot with spinfinity.
However, I observed on someone else's computer (who had installed F11 with a more recent release than me) that he didn't have the spinfinity theme but the charge theme.
So I supposed this was to be the default plymouth theme, and installed it.
Right after that, I had graphical shutdown with the charge theme, but still text boot.
Latest kernel update fixed that:
So it looks like it was a simple updating issue. Not sure what went wrong exactly and why I didn't have the charge theme if that was the default one however...
