Error with xorg-x11-server-Xorg


Hi,

A couple weeks ago I got this error: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=230153

I then fixed it.

Yesterday I accidentally upgraded again, but now it doesn't get as far as the login screen (I set it to autologin), so I can't downgrade.

How should I fix this? Boot up with a live cd and disable autologin? I'll need reminding how, I've forgotten.

Solved.

For anyone else that has this problem, it can be fixed by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F2 when the Fedora logo comes on screen, and really quickly logging in as root. Then type "yum downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg" wait for a bit, then "reboot".

Remember to disable auto login, and set it to timed login if you have this problem.
