Re: Fedora 10 installation on Sony Notebook VGNFW235J

Have a strange issue trying to install Fedora 10 on a students new Sony Notebook. The initial install process has the screen going to a weird gray screen after the cd process, so the gui process would not work. Then tried it with a text install, and the process went thru completely, but on boot only came up with a text login. Startx would give the same gray screen....

I was able to copy an xorg.conf file from a machine with vesa setup, and this time startx did come up, but it never did the startup process that is normal.

Is there some option or something that needs to be done to get a good install on the Sony notebook??

Installing in text mode causes anaconda to ASSUME that you want to start in run mode 3 (no X).

edit /etc/inittab and set the default run level to 5

Good Luck!
