Hi- i am an intermediate linux user, new to the fedora package.
let me say first off, that i DID look around a bit before writing this posting (couldn't find exactly my answer though i found some related postings), and although i am not sure what area this post truly belongs in, i am a noob to this forum and i am sure you will forgive me this one time
I am running fedora core 2 (fully updated) on a Toshiba Satellite 5105-S701 laptop, and i am having a rather serious problem.
Basically, i "successfully" installed the most recent NVIDIA drivers, using the steps provided in their readme.
My problem is that after modifying my xfree86 config file in the way that the readme suggested, i can no longer reach any kind of login prompt on my machine...
I can get as far as the "press I for interactive startup" option, but then no matter what i do or press, the computer screen goes black, and will *never* recover.
My real question is this: Is there a way to bypass the visual elements of the Fedora startup process so that i can "un-modify" my xfree86 config file and continue using Linux.
I posess enough linux-ing ability to fix the problem if i could just log in somehow.
Is there a key combination or something that a noob like me doesn't know about, that will kick me directly to a prompt?
Am i screwed and should reinstall?
Am i completely retarded and missing something obvious (no flames necessary, heh)?
Please help, and thanks for reading this mess.
