I am running fedora 16 on my HP dv6t laptop, (Ati vido card/intel integrated)
and I had "RPM fusion" as my main repo (using yum priorities) and the other day I received an update one of the things in the list said ATI, I did not do much reading, so i clicked update, the next time I try to boot up my pc, it says "Starting Display manager", followed by "Started Display manager" and it just stalls there, so i did some googling, and I cam across a post that said to run
# yum install xorg-x11-drv-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i686
I rebooted, and still no luck, so I found another page, this page that said to try
yum -y install akmod-catalyst kmod-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-devel xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs
and still no luck, so a few other pages told me to use a 'fail safe' xorg config so I looked in /etc/X11 and all i saw was applink,fontpath.d, fs, prefdm, xinit, Xmodmap xorg.conf.d, and Xresources.
I then looked up how to create a new configuration and found that i could run "Xorg :1 -configure"
so I tried it with and without the ':1' But it kept saying:
