View Full Version : F12 won't boot

25th January 2012, 08:37 PM
Hi Everyone !!

I have a big problem....My computer can't boot on linux (Fedora 12).
When I switch on I have the following message :

Installation problem
The configuration defaults for GNOME Power manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator.

It appears just after the blu screen with the Fedora logo. Then I have the window to enter my password, then login, and then...NOTHING !!! it's frozen...

It's my work computer, I really need to solve this problem as quick as possible !!!
There's no problem for booting on windows.

PS: before switching off the computer, I was running a program but I think it was "looping" and I switched off the program by closing the terminal. If it may helps...

Thanks everyone for your help !!!

Moved to EOL (End Of Life) Versions (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forumdisplay.php?f=75) and retitled to something meaningful.
