FC9 - Kernel panic not syncing videodev bad unregister
I have an HP Pavillion PC and I just installed 32 bit Fedora Core 9. Initially during fist startup, the screen would turn off after starting Udev, and eventually the computer powers down. I got by this problem by using acpi=off. But now I get a kernel panic with the following message:
Kernel panic not syncing videodev bad unregister
And I cannot proceed from there. The machine just hangs.
Has anyone seen this message before because my search for this error message was to no avail.
I am relatively new to Linux by the way.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
