If I try Fedora 16 Aplha 1 as Live CD, then the following message appears:
"Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."
If I do that, then the same error appears again. I had that error on two PC's and one laptop. The laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad R61i 8932GMG.
I did download the Fedora-16-Alpha-i686-Live-Desktop.iso The checksum was OK.
And I did use the boot option Verify and Boot
I am seeing this problem too on a couple of systems.
I have found I can get into single-user mode by using the tab key at boot time to edit the boot command line and add a 1 parameter. I believe I used the Basic Video line to start with.
I was able to use the Internet in line mode and mount the hard disks. When I typed exit, the system tried to start Gnome 3. It complained that my display hardware wasn't modern enough, and then started X logged in as liveuser. I got an Selinux violation, but when I tried to display it, the fixing strategies were readable, but greyed-out and not clickable, so I haven't saved this info.
The ability to use mode 1 makes it possible to apply a temporary fix at each boot.

Tried downloading the new firefox 6 as offered. I was offered a generic .tgz file that I could not make work in a few clicks. I suggest waiting for Fedora to release its version.

Tried i686 Live on same machine. With normal boot, light bulb sequence went to end, but machine just stopped. CTRL-ALT-F2 showed a blank screen.
Rebooted with basic video. I spotted a call trace go by, which I am posting. The text nearby refers to a potential race condition in login, so maybe that's why login sometimes fails. Also got a SELINUX alert that I will post (looks like the previous one).

Sorry about the lack of response. Please try with the final release, and reopen if that does not work.
