Just updated the kernel about an hour ago.

Fedora 10 (x86)
Dell GX240
VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF

When booting it gets as far as "starting anacron" and then I just
get a black screen with keyboard and mouse frozen.
Dmesg and boot log offer no hints.

I have had the same problem with my ATI card and the flgrx driver in the
past (stickign at "starting anacron").  Adding nomodeset to the kernel
line on boot up gets past it.  You can change it by adding it in grub on
boot up, and making the change permanent if it works.


I have heard of some instances where the radeon driver is no longer working for certain ATI chips. radeonhd is the way to go. Maybe init 3 and change the driver in xorg.conf and see if it helps.
