Created attachment 579368 [details]
tar file with etc.tbz and logs.tbz

Description of problem:
After a fresh install of Fedora 16 the system displays the fedora circle. No login screen is displayed. If I do a KDE install then the login screen is displayed on the left side, not centered. But I can get in and work.

After a fresh install of Fedora 17 beta the fireworks page is briefly displayed then a black box is presented. It is like there are no fonts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
I have had trouble with this since Fedora 15. 

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Added /etc/modprobe.d/noaccel.conf file with 'options nouveau noaccel=1'
Made a new initfs and rebooted.
I can now get logged in with gnome.

I have attached a tar file with /etc and /var/log and /root. 
The Xorg.0.log is from when I had the problem.
Comment 1 Reece Dike 2012-04-22 19:19:48 EDT
I placed the output of dmidecode and lspci in the logs directory that is in the tar file.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 17:02:49 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-31 17:48:18 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
