Unable to complete boot 3.7.3-101.fc17.i686
 
did yum update today and got a new kernel 3.7.3-101.fc17.i686
it boots - gets to the point where the graphical system should come up - and hangs
FYI: I have my system set so I can see the startup (eliminated 2 parameters in the grub config file)

Booting 3.7.3 leaves behind a condition where my prior version 3.6.11-5.fc17.i686 also hanges without the graphical system coming up

If I boot 3.7.3 to level 1 and then init 5 the graphical system does not come up

if I boot 3.6.11 to level 1 and init 5 the graphical system does come up and heals the problem - thus allowing me to boot it again. - that's how I got here. Once the system is "healed" 3.6.11 does a full startup but when I try 3.7.3 the problem comes back.

Thus i need to tell grub to boot 3.6.11 (or set default in the cmd file).

I have a nvidia adapter.

Suggestions?

you uninstalled the nvidia driver and did NOT install the new/updated one
you have no graphics driver installed

the kmod-nvidia driver may be 1 to 3 days behind the matching kernel

syg00 01-25-2013 10:16 PM

Maybe have a look at the akmod - but there may still be a lag in availability.

John - thanks - but how do we explain why 3.6.11 runs ok?

I suspect that the 3.6.10 nvidia that was removed was for the 3.6.10 kernel that was removed?

3.6.11 finds a driver and I'm up and running on it at this moment

additional clue
the problem appears to involve the file that identifies the users on the system
When i "healed" the problem by booting to 3.6.11 to level 1 and then init 5 and then shutdown - the next time that i started 3.6.11 it presented CVS user first, whereas normally it merely gives me knox.

heres what booting 3.6.11 says about the nvidia driver in use at the moment

ahha - maybe this kernel needs a nvidia driver that has not come yet? that happened to me once before. I'll keep on the lookout for one.

This is so stupid - they wouldn't let me use f16 in regular mode because their nouveau driver didn't support my video card, so i got the nvidia driver, but now they dont really support my system because i'm using an outside driver!!

but its fun and I look forward to my updates every day like a kid looks forward to Christmas and it keeps me on my toes - I'm not complaining

John VV 01-26-2013 01:26 AM

for a long time now the kmod AND the kernel ( they HAVE TO MATCH !!! ) came out together

but , that was not always the case .
in the early years of fedora there could be 1 to 14 days delay .
it got SO BAD that i would NEVER update the kernel , i would remove it from the update .
Then update the kmod and let that grab the kernel as a prerequisite

have a look at the akmod-nvidia
the akmod builds the driver automatically if the kernel changes

or
use the .run
but the .run has a lot of manual things YOU have to do

like manually rerunning the .run to reinstall it for EVERY kernel,x11/xorg update

and the .run
Warning:
changes the <GL.h> header and the "libGL.so" from the fedora DEFAULT measGL
but it dose NOT change ALL of mesa so you can have a problem with openGL2 &3 programs if the gl lib dose NOT match what the rpm uses

Oh well -than that's the problem because locate shows a kmod for 3.6.11-5 and 3.6.11-1 but none for 3.7.3-101

So the game plan is set default=1 in the grub2 config file till I see that the nvidia part has arrived

Sure is nice to have expert advice like this

Thanks

install the akmod-nvidia
see the fedora forum guide ( for 17 so ...)
http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/sh...d.php?t=280750

but will do for 18
