Re: Upgrade from Fedora 7 to 9, no GUI

I tried renaming /etc/inittab.rpmnew to /etc/inittab but that did not work.

The last three lines in /var/log/Xorg.0.log are:
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found

This is from another thread currently on the list. Subject Re: F9/KDE4: Can't access screen resolution changes after software install

To get your x settings back you can shut down x with "telinit 3", then log in as root at the command line (not an xterm). Next you run "Xorg --configure" which will generate a new xorg.conf file in the current directory which you must copy to "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" (see "man Xorg"). Finally restart x by "telinit 5".
You might try the above advice to see if manually running the X configuration will help. Is there something exotic about your hardware? It is rare for it not to be detected at all. The more common case when there is a problem is to have bad resolution.

From the command line, if you run dmesg | less what does it show during video card detection. If you are getting to the command line in a console, it is detecting some kind of video setup. There would be a blank screen if it wasn't. Are there errors during detection?
