Problem with installing fedora 17
i'm a big fan of fedora and i'm using it since f9. i've used fedora 15 for quiet a long time and recently planned to upgrade to f17. but with installing it, i'm facing a weird problem which i didn't face before.
i started installing f17 (fresh install) through the dvd version. when the installation starts, it gives the msg:
rpcbind terminating on signal. Restart with "rpcbind -w".
then the display becomes smaller and and goes to the top left corner. it stays for a few minutes and then the installation starts in full screen. the installation process goes as usual without any problem. the formatting, selection of packages and the installing files finishes smoothly. then it prompts for the nest setting, like the username and password and then the problems start.
in that white screen (where we pick username, select time etc), the right end of my display comes nearly middle (a little on the left side) of my screen. so the reboot button comes at the bottom left and if i move the mouse beyond the right end of my screen, it enters the display from the left and goes till the visible right end of the display. i fill up the forms (the key strokes work regularly, no issue with that) and press reboot.
the reboot completes and then i get a background image and get stuck there. there is no other login window or anything. the visible right end of my display stays at the nearly the middle of the screen and i can move mouse cursor in the same way as above, but there is nothing more to do.
my system config are below:
motherboard : intel
processor : intel core 2 quad
hdd: 320 GB sata
ram : 2 GB
graphics card : amd radeon sapphire hd 6570
i hope i have made my problem clear to you. since yesterday, i've tried to install f17 several times (clean install everytime) and the same thing happens every time. i'm really getting frustrated and going back to f15.
but i really wanted to try f17.
does anyone have any solution to my problem? pls suggest.
thanks in advance.
