Description kot_10_4 2010-06-17 07:16:23 UTC
After upgrading to Fedora 13 every time I rebooted the screen was black where there would normally be a login screen.  After following the instructions at 

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F12_bugs

I added 'nomodeset' as a kernel parameter and my system then booted as expected.  I searched for this bug and found: 

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=nomodeset
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=519666
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=597004

I do not have a xorg.conf

Comment 1 kot_10_4 2010-06-17 07:49:14 UTC
after trying to go back and reproduce my problem without the nomodeset kernel option I was able to startup sucessfully and could not reproduce the problem.
