Warning: at kernel/exit.c:814 do exit() (Tainted: P ) <- nVidia video problem?
A sad day for me, my Fedora is busted :( (God let me be so wrong)
Here's the situation, my nVidia graphics card mal-functioned and I sent it for a replacement since it was still under warranty. During this period, I disabled the nVidia driver using chkconfig and used the onboard Intel video and all was fine. Now I got my nVidia card back, changed the video config in BIOS from onboard to external PCIe, plugged in the card, and went on to boot Fedora. But, it came to a halt on this screen.
I tried in single user mode but the result is the same. I know probably I have to re-enable the nVidia driver using chkconfig again, but how do I get into the system? And isn't single user mode supposed to run in a very basic mode without any drivers being loaded? Or is the problem a totally different one?
It will be hard on me if I have to re-install Fedora, oh God, so much stuff in there, so many customizations, honestly I just can't do it again, don't have the time now, am in a job and so forth...
Posting this from Windows from the same system and things are fine here.
Appreciate your help
EDIT: Hey reading the bottom message in that pic "rm -f /var/gdm...", I now remember that the last shutdown was improper, had a power cut and I was changing the GTK theme. Something fishy here?
Thanks for the reply osor, and I'm so glad how wrong can people be, me as well as you :D
I remebered I had also installed the Xen kernel, so using a live-cd, I re-enable it in GRUB, booted into it and it did boot. Then I enabled the nVidia driver using chkconfig and rebooted into my normal kernel and things are back to normal.
A constant process of learning when using Linux, nice :)
