recently my lappi fedora 8 suffered an avahi-daemon failure: the result the greeter application crashed!! web searches directed me to ctrl+alt+f2, releasing the X0-lock and startx (which did not work at all..). nxt i tried changing my driver from radeon to vesa by system-config-display --reconfig, it worked very fine for 3 days and now again i am back to square one with none of these tricks giving way. one option which i'm currently trying is installing the ATI Radeon xpress 1100 IGP driver for my AMD Turion 64 bit laptop (HP nx6325).
i'll b more than glad to receive help as its my utmost need of the hour,
