Re: WARNING:DO NOT UPGRADE TO CORE 4



Upgrade?  What type of upgrade did you perform, a full install or a true 
upgrade from a previous version?  Were your settings saved in a separate 
partition?

If no one else seems to be having this problem then the problem is probably 
not with Fedora but with the settings not being correct.

No one knows why?  Have you been following this list for any length of time?
A couple of recent messages had very useful information to help solve this 
problem.

Using drivers from previous versions often causes problems.  Many things get 
changed between version which is why I recommend a fresh install (saving all 
the /home directories as separate, unformatted partitions).
