Installed all updates, now system is messed up!!!
Late last night my friend told me I should run the updates. I forget exactly how many there were but it was about 250-260. He said I should let it go all night, so I did. After the updates finished downloading later this morning it asked me to install them so I clicked "Forward" and continued to install the updates. Once the updates finished installing I rebooted the system and in my boot loader there were 2 options available; Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.14 FC3) and Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667).
I did not receive any errors when running the new kernel that I can see but, when I get to my login screen and login, everything seems tremendously slow and my wallpaper is gone and is now plain white. I'm running Fedora Core 3 and I'm using Gnome but I do not know which version of Gnome.
I'm running this on a Toshiba Tecra A1 laptop and when I tap the touchpad to click it no longer works unless I do it in a particular way. Before updating everything worked great. When I reboot and choose the 2.6.9 kernel it seems to speed up a bit from the login screen on, but still my wallpaper is gone and the touchpad seems to act a little flaky. I was wondering if there was any way to fix this, I'm pretty much a linux newbie...Thanks a lot!
