Hi, I can tell this isn't the first time someone has had problems getting the Fedora graphical mode to work, or the welcome screen to pop up for that matter. I thought maybe I'd ask because I've been reading through the forums trying different things and nothing seems to work for me.
Here is a picture of my problem:
This occurs after I am done installing and it tries to go into the happy little graphical mode welcome screen. My computer crashes and burns at this point. Key commands are pointless - my system bus locks up and the capslock/numlock/scrolllock lights cannot be activated on my keyboard during this error.
I can log in to linux and boot with it fine... in TEXT mode. Text mode is boring. I really want to be able to type startx and not have it crash. The installer recognizes my video card and my monitor. I tried fidgiting with the xorg.conf file but really to no avail as everything seemed to be ok inside it. Not that I know what I'm doing.
I ran the yum updates. I installed Fedora Core 5 32bit and Fedora Core 5 64bit.
Neither are working.
Pentium 4 950 D 3.4Ghz Dual Core with 64 bit support
2.5Gb DDR2 ram
SATAII 160gb drive
80Gb Maxtor IDE drive (thats the linux install drive)
NVidia GeforceFX 6600 LE 256mb
Someone please help the newbie.
