Re: FC3 Graphical Install and Boot Problems



I tried re-running the installation using "nofb" but no change. I also removed rhgb from the grub line, but still no change. It boots up and into what I assume is the firstboot program. Is there a way to set grub to tell the system to boot in runlevel 3 or anything?

As far as the output on boot, smartd fails, but it moves too fast for me to see the Xorg outputs before going into graphical mode.

I'm having troubles installing FC3 in graphical install or, once
installed using text mode, booting (can't get past firstboot's
graphical mode). I see the buttons, dialogue boxes, etc., but not text
in any of them, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I tried switching to
a VGA monitor, but no luck, same as with DVI. Any ideas? I'm using the
FC3 DVD and it passes media check.

From the FC3 release notes: use the "nofb" switch if you experience
problems with the framebuffer mode.
One installed remove the "rhgb" (maybe too the "quiet" option to get
more verbose output) from the kernel parameter line (grub boot screen
press "a").
