View Full Version : Fedora line screen of death

Hey I just recently updgrading my yum and, now whenever, it goes to the log on screen it turns to lines and a very weird resolution. Is there a way to get it working right again?

Are they vertical lines? Are you running an NVidia Graphics card? I have problems with that when I don't upgrade my nvidia kernel modules with a new kernel.

check the ATI site or YUM for driver which are designed for your kernel.
