Re: fedora 14 live cd cannot get to desktop

It should just login after clicking the button. Mine worked fine but I used the 32 bit version. What happens when you reboot the machine and after the menu is pasted but before fedora is loaded if you hit the down arrow on your keyboard. This will show you what is happening while loading and every line should be marked OK as it continues to load until it finally gets to the logon screen.

Let me know what happens up until that point.

Oh and yes you are in the right spot for these questions.

This looks as if the problem could be due to an usb device. What usb devices are connected to your machine?

If you have anything plugged in that is USB unplug and try it again and see what happens.

HID means human interface device.

Now I looked around a bit and found that it could be many different types of devices causing this problem so unplug all USB device. Also do you have a touch screen attached? That could also be the problem.

Found this at redhat boglist. It may help and is worth a try . type in the suggestions startring at #2.

1. Boot the live image to runlevel 1
2. rpm -e prelink
3. remove the prelink lines from /etc/profile.d/kde4.(sh|csh)
4. init 5


See if this helps in the mean time I'll keep researching the errors.

Re: fedora 14 live cd cannot get to desktop

Glad to see that it is working for you now. even though you had to move to the 32 bit version. But as I posted those suggestions may have allowed the 64 bit version to work. All you needed to do was boot to the console like you previously did and type in the commands that were listed.

But good luck and enjoy Fedora. There are many features that are not available in windows and I just love KDE because of the multiple setting that can be used to tweak the desktop to my likings.

You should report the problems you had to bugzilla. You can do that through the link at the top of the page.

Click on the FedoraProject then select bug reports. This will take you to the redhat bugzilla website. You will need to create an account to create the bug report. Once in select create new, choose fedora and complete the information required. I'm not sure if they have a category for boot so just pick the closest one to that, that you believe to be correct. If it's not right they will move it to the correct group so they can further investigate the problem and possibly fix it. Fedora is really Redhat in disguise since they are one of the main supporters of fedora, both in development and monetary support.

Some of the things you need to include are:

Both errors that you have stated.

The USB devices in use when you got the first error, keyboard and hard-drive type(USB enclosure manufacturer or name)

The make and model # of your system( Compaq, Toshiba ,HP)

When they get around to looking into these errors you will receive an email from them letting you know what they are doing to fix the problem.

You do NOT get support like that from MS.

Have fun exploring and playing with your new system and if you're still playing with the live CD don't worry you can NOT break anything because it will not be saved unless it is on a USB flash drive.



Oh and have a nice Christmas and a happy New Year!

Re: fedora 14 live cd cannot get to desktop

ok .. dunno if i still should post this here or should i make a post for it

i figured out why was the 64-bit not working for me ...
i was happy working with the 32-bit version anyway ... but thought to give the the 64-bit version another try kinda didnt like to let it go

the solution was that i redownloaded it again .... looks like something was wrong while downloading it the first time ....

i just tried it now ..and it work even more perfect than the 32-version ..... because 64-bit version detected my sound from the live cd ...... when the 32 - bit didnt ............

thanx for all who tried to help ........ this post is solved
