Fedora C3 boot problem
 
Hi,

I am just wondering if anyone has come across problem similar to this and know how to fix it.

When i boot up my system, it says

Uncompressing linux ...... ok, booting the kernel
audit (1104535970:0): initialized
Red Hat Nash version 4.1.18 starting
insmod: error inserting '/lib/BusLogic.ko': -1 No
ERROR: /lib/insmod exited abnormally!
INIT: version 2.85 booting
.
.
.
.
Initializing hardware ... storage network audio done [ok]
Configuring hernel parameters


and it just stops there without doing anything.


can someone please help?


thanks

Could it be, that you installed the NVidia driver? Because i had the same problem if i "just" installed it. If in the Videocard0 section in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf the driveroption is nvidia, you could change the driver to vesa (with the rescue mode), and check if that solves the problem. But you surely won't want to keep that configuration, as, at least for me, the Hz of the monitor stays at 60. To solve this, you need to load the nvidia driver yourself, only then X starts properly, it seems. My suggestion would be to edit the /etc/rc.sysinit and search for the location of the "grafical boot", which shouldn't be far down. Then you just write "/sbin/modprobe nvidia" before it, change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf back (commenting out dri and changing the driver back to nvidia) and then it should work.

Hope this helps.

[Edit]Ok, to be honest, the solution doesn't always work. But it seems that it always works if i change to the vesa driver. So maybe disabling the graphical boot would be another solution.[/Edit]

I had the same problem after I installed the Nvidia Drivers. The steps I take to fix this are:

When grub appears I go into the boot options... I'm not sure whether that is done my pressing 'a' or 'e' but under one of them there will be a line of text that contains the leters rhgb. Delete those four letters and it should boot normally. When the system does boot up log in as yourself. (this will be terminal style)
then type :
su -c '/sbin/modprobe nvidia'
password: <root password>


Of course this is assuming you're running the nvidia drivers.... hope this helps.

Fedora Boot Problem
 
I had a similar problem too. I tried loading Fedora 3 on a Dell 1100 Pentium 3 with plenty of RAM, and got it to upgrade (from Fedora 2) but when it loads, the video crashed.

I tried to do a full install, but the installation hangs when trying to find the installation media on CD1. Fedora Core 3 is not impressing me thus far.


I think my Dell Inspiron 1100 has a Nvidia card in it, but I can't quite remember.

i've got it sorted out thanks. It's due to the rhgb thing in the kernel parameter. Once i removed it, it works fine as i've experienced in rh9


thanks for all the replies

Hm, does the rhgb enable the graphical boot? (As it could be spelled as redhat graphical boot) Or do you still get the Status bar etc?

i still get the graphics interface when i boot up.

I tried doing that and it said "Fatal: module Nvidia not found"
