Hello,

a while ago I did a 'yum update' on my FC4. After rebooting X didn't
work anymore so I re-installed the X RPMs as per the original FC4
distro. I could get everything back to work except for one thing: when
I switch to a text-mode console (e.g. via Ctrl-Alt-F1) it isn't there:
only a black screen. Well actually it *is* there because I can log in
(typing in the blind), run a command (e.g. touch /tmp/tttt), switch
back to graphical mode and confirm that I did actually log in.

I don't know where to start investigating for this. Ideas? Thanks...

This was a well-know bug in the original FC4 distro. Updates were published that fix it. It seems you need not-quite-the-latest updates.

Paul.
