View Full Version : Blank screen when booting FC9

28th May 2008, 03:07 AM
Hi All,

Just finished upgrading FC8 to FC9 and just after the screen said Starting udev [OK] the screen goes blank and nothing appears to progress. :(
Is there a way to work around this issue or do I have to do some kind of re-reinstall?

The computer is setup to dual boot and I'm using MS XP to send out this query.

Any help will be appreciated.

can u just login in rescue mode and send the /var/log/messages file.I think by using that file we can solve the issue.

Thanks for responding sri_ram1982. The only way I currently have to access the message file is using a cd version of Knoppix. I don't know what editor program I can use and it seems that you need to be root which does not seem possible. Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

Well, I gave up and just did a full reinstall and now can log in using GUI interface. The next problem is getting second video card and monitor to function. That's another thread.
