Error after running yum update - black screen


Can you guys advise on how to resolve this? We have a machine (RHEL 6 32bit 2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.i686) that boots to a black screen. I can SSH into it from my machine, but when you're physically at the machine it just displays a black screen.

I have tried booting from the previous 2 kernels, but still get the black screen.

I am assuming something got hosed with the video stuff? Its an ATI Radeon 4000series card. Should I install the ATI driver from their website and try? We have never had to do that with these machines though.


Also, when running a yum update, we receive this error. I'm not sure how to resolve this and if resolving this will fix the video issues.

Code:
# yum update

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Heres after running yum update --skip-broken:

Code:
# yum update --skip-broken

get busy with rpm and the man page. You can use levers and hammers to get yourself out of something like that. I think you will have to download everything skipped, and find their requirements. Then install the requirements. Major PITA.

I'd start by running yum update on just libgudev1; it appears that the remaining dependencies would be satisfied if you can get beyond that one

Thanks guys.
I tried to update just this one package and it says:

Code:
sudo yum update libgudev1-147-2.46.el6.i686
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin, security
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.

You think this bug report might help?
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=888085
Sorry not sure if that was relevant because of the difference in name.

After looking at your errors that link may be quite relevant.

Back to the black screen problem - have you tried booting using the nomodeset kernel parameter?

@RockDoctor: Good suggestion, but I recently had no kernel modesetting on one oldish laptop running a recent kernel and X wouldn't boot that way. I had been doing a 'git bisect' and somehow lost my own video driver in the remakes.

You probably need to create a link here

After creating a symlink between libudev.so.1 and libudev.so.0 it worked fine.
Also if you have a redhat subscription, you've paid for support I would give them a call.
