Re: f10dvd installs but won't boot



Craig responded:

boot F10 in runlevel 3
login as root
yum update mkinitrd
yum update
yum install system-config-display
system-config-display --reconfig

If you do all that, can run 'startx' and be happy, I suppose you are
good.

--------------------------------
jbyers:
all went ok except last,
system-config-display --reconfig
 which fails with

Couldn't start X server on card 0
Error, failed to start X server.

tried it twice
 once still using old kernel
 once using new kernel

same result on both

the stanza does work now without scsimodescan

ie here is the new stanza, with new kernel,
as modified by me to remove scsimodscan
title Fedora (2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686) noscsimodescn
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=449a78aa-
d4d5-4e91-bf9c-5833d7218c8f  3
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686.img

this again allows booting to level 3
so Craig's  update method has cured that problem.

I also did
useradd byers
passwd byers

and
yum install emacs
so at least i have a text editor i understand.

Any ideas on the failing X server?

Jack
