I did a clean installation of Fedora 12 from the CD today and the first boot was fine. I could log into the computer and get the graphical interface. I then did a yum upgrade and 500 MB later the upgrade was finished. I then rebooted the computer and now the boot gets stuck at the f that looks like infinity which is just before the login screen would display. I can boot into single user mode and also get into text mode but the graphical mode will not give me the login screen. I saw that there was not a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file so I ran Xorg -configure to create one but that did not help either.Any ideas on what could be causing this?
Boot into text mode. Log in on the console, run "startx" and see what happens:
1) If you get bounced back to the terminal, save a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, then look inside, for clues.
2) If the display hangs, try to switch to another VT using ALT-F2, or ALT-F3. Save a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Ditto.
3) If all else fails, do the three-fingered salute, reboot into text mode, log in to the console, then save a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, then look inside, for clues. Ditto.
