Re: "No Screen" error when running F10-i686-Live-KDE and Nvidia GEForce 7000M

| From: Chad Trotter <chadtrotter mac com>

When you boot, and you get "No Screen", can you press CTRL-ALT-F2 and get 
a console with a shell prompt or login prompt?  (If that doesn't work, you 
could try CTRL-ALT-F3 or CTRL-ALT-F4.)

If you do get a shell prompt, it would be interesting to investigate what 
the actual problem.  I'd have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log.  It may well 
why the X driver is unhappy.

I admit that decoding the Xorg.0.log is hard to understand.  And it is too 
long to post to the mailing list.

- you could add an entry for your problem at bugzilla.redhat.com.  That 
  would be the best idea but it is a bit of work.  In fact, you should 
  search there first to see if such a problem is already reported.

- you could post your Xorg.0.log to pastebin.ca and post the link in a 
  message here

Good luck!
