 I have updated my FC4 to FC5.

At the first reboot, it started as it should, but was a bit slow in
graphics. I solved some problems with yum using FC4 repos, and the
entire machine is now updated (Except for an old known problem on
gstreamer).

The problem is, that the X server won't start. I have tried the following:

1. boot to runlevel 3, and run "system-config-display
 "couldn't start X server on Card 0"
2. boot to runlevel 3, and run "startx"
 "couldn't start X server on Card 0"
3. removed xorg-x11-server-Xorg and all related packages,and reinstalled
it all
 Still same result as 1 & 2.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong - I am desperate?

 You did not state what make of graphics adapter that you have
installed. There are problems with the as shipped kernel and drivers
for both Nvidia and ATI. You need to upgrade if you have either type
of adapter.


 OK.

 Any suggestions to a website or a yum package?

 I have a feeling, that a have crawled through it all

There are lots of updates since FC5 was released. You can do an update
of everything that you have installed or just an update of the kernel
and xorg..

  
No something else must be wrong.

I have installed the latest kernel (2.6.16-1.2096_FC5)
I have installed the latest NVIDIA driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756)

All I get is a black screen, with a blinking dash in the top left corner, and a big white mousecursor.

I have even tried to reinstall without any luck

Any ideas are welcome

Mikael
