Xorg's startup log
Description of problem:
Booting up Fedora 13, X does not start and I am brought to the text-based login. Upon logging in, startx starts it up fine. Graphics card is a Radeon HD 4650, xorg.conf is set to use the radeonhd driver.
Here is my grub.conf entry (hasn't been manually changed):
title Fedora (220.127.116.11-95.fc13.x86_64)
kernel /vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-95.fc13.x86_64 ro root=UUID=a64088fb-d59e-4eb7-8643-f77b440a211d nomodeset radeon.modeset=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F13
Previously with Fedora 12 and possibly earlier releases, the rhgb option has led to the same text loading bar I am seeing now, as opposed to the graphical boot I see on my other computer. However, the graphical login started up afterward.
Let me know if any other logs would help.
Well it turns out I'm dumb, I merged the changes from an /etc/inittab.rpmnew which apparently sets the init runlevel to 3 instead of the previous 5. Why a new RPM would create an rpmnew with runlevel 3 is another matter.
