View Full Version : virtual console not visible

5th September 2007, 08:56 PM
I am using fc6 on my dell vostro 1400 and am having trouble viewing virtual console. When i boot in run level 5, i go to graphical interface perfectly fine. Entering Ctrl+Alt+F1-6 gives me a black screen. When i login blindly on the black screen and check users logged in, it shows the user. Booting in run level 3 gives me all 1-6 consols and i can work fine. If i now change to run level 5, i get the same problem again.

My kernel is and i am using latest xorg available from fedora repository.

My comp has 128 MB nvidia geforce 8400m gs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What is the on-board graphics card in this machine? There was an issue (I think with FC5) and on-board Intel chipsets whereby the virtual consoles either had a green border, or just blank screens.
