Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830061
No display on startup
Last modified: 2012-08-12 16:04:20 EDT
Description of problem:
On booting screen shows loading linux kernel and then screen stops, nothing shows up display becomes off
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On computer startup using the kernel 3.4.0-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on system
2. On grub select 3.4.0-1 option
After it shows loading kernel and loading .... screen stops
After showing loading kernel message screen turns off and starts with the better resolution
I believe this problem is because of NVDIA drivers, my NVDIA graphic card is Geforce 320m, but its showing as gallium 0.4 in system details in gnome3. earlier when kernel was in version 2.6 and 2.8 I had this problem, and I used to add nomodeset option to switch to fall back mode in grub.
But from kernel 3 this problem was fixed with noeavu drivers, but looks like the problem is back again!
I'm currently using my system booting through the 3.3.7-1 kernel
This problem is after the latest update which installed kernel 3.4.0-1,
before that in kernel 3.3.7 everything was fine
there has been kernel update, so any news or fixes? can I try the new kernel?
This bug is fixed in the latest update! thanx! closing the bug
