For some reason you have nomodeset on your command line remove that. We don't support nomodeset configuration
Comment 5 biodark 2012-06-04 17:27:59 EDT
This is out of the box installation, I didn't change anything.
Comment 6 biodark 2012-06-04 17:51:31 EDT
If I remove nomodeset the systems doesn't boot to desktop.
Comment 7 Jérôme Glisse 2012-06-04 18:15:33 EDT
Well attach dmesg when booting without nomodeset. You can probably ssh in to retrieve it, otherwise attach full /var/log/messages after doing:
boot without nomodeset
boot with nomodeset
attach /var/log/messages files

Comment 10 Dave Airlie 2012-06-05 01:54:15 EDT
remove nomodeset and the xorg.conf.
Comment 11 biodark 2012-06-05 02:49:27 EDT
It now boots with r600g when removing xorg.conf and nomodeset, I don't know why a clean fedora install added these.
Comment 12 Adam Jackson 2012-06-05 08:44:04 EDT
Because you installed through the "Basic Graphics" option, which disables the accelerated driver.

Don't have done that.
