Last modified: 2010-07-03 17:39:04 EDT
Description of problem:
System fails to boot into mode 5. Works OK mode 3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the machine
With boot steps showing,
starting atd OK
No further output from the screen, no change to graphics mode
Worked fine since installation of FC13.
Applied updates of 29 June 2010, booted the following morning,
No x windows.
Can you post /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the failed startup please.
Bit big for direct post!
Resolved (got me back on line)
by swapping out the Nvidia 9500 for an ATI 4770.
Just a thought. No way I could have posted that file
using a CLI interface to Fedora?
I need a log from nouveau failing, not ATI working...
You asked for the file, I gave it to you.
Its content is quite incomprehensible to me.
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 149695 Jul 2 07:21 Xorg.0.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 189085 Jul 1 17:49 Xorg.0.log.old
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 42521 May 27 16:10 Xorg.9.log
July 1 seems also to focus on ATI kit.
May 27 relates to the system, working, with the Nvidia card.
Log appears to be undated, hence nothing I can see which
relates to 29 Jun, 30 June, when I experienced the problem.
Bad logging Ben?
Sorry, cant give you want you want,
