FC4 update or gxmame killed my graphics
Hello all Linux users
Quick question I am hoping you can help me with, last nice I ran a full yum update on my laptop (FC4) and it promptly installed 86 outstanding updates. Following that I thought I would install gxmame for a bit of fun (I also had to install 2 libís to make it work) anyway I played a couple of games for 30mins of so then powered off the system.
I have just powered it back on and now itís unable to boot into X - following the first part of the boot sequence the system starts udev etc and the see the OK signs then it would normally go to the splash/system startup screen Ė however at this point I just get strips of color and a couple of funny patterns at the top of the screen. I am also totally unable to get in to any other non X sessions ctrl + alt + F1 to F5 just doesnít do anything I am still left with the pretty patterns. I really want to avoid rebuilding this system as I have just got it working with everything I want Ė please can anyone offer some help and please treat me as a total noobie with step by steps.
As far as I know the system in running a default intel shared graphics and nothing fancy like an Nvidia
Thanks in advance for any help
