Angry about Mandrake 10.1 not booting on my Centrino laptop, I decided to try my FC2-DVD that was lying arround anyway, as it worked flawlessly on a friend's laptop.
It installed fine, I got kernel updates, KDE3.3 and everything seemed fine. Even my ipw2200 WLAN-card seemed to work fine, but was (as happened with my friend) gone on reboot and could not be initiated. I found an article on a forum and did what it suggested, added modprobe ipw2200
to /etc/rc.local and commented out the line about ipw2200 in /etc/modprobe.conf. (I am not very familiar with these files, but I've checked that I at least didn't type anything wrong.)
The problem now is that Fedora boots, but when all the OK's are passed and the login should appear, I only get the sh-shell, no login prompt. If I write login
I can log in, but X won't always start. It is the same if I use runlevel 3 or 5, but when looking at the progress bar in runlevel 5, it stops right before the end (and gives me the sh-prompt, when I click the show details-button). When I do get X to start (and don't get a PAM authentication error, whatever that means), everything seems to be working..I suppose something is wrong in some startup file, but what?(I have only changed the 2 files mentioned above, even tried to change them back but it didn't help)
Don't really want to reinstall again.. Anyone has a suggestion?
