first there IS NO!!!!! new version of the linux flash
adobe killed off linux and apple flash
adobe is basically a MICROSOFT ONLY company now
-- nothing new well ever be added to it , just some security fixes ? maybe?
I decided to end that terminal session and started and started the YUM update over again.
a partly updated system might NEVER EVER BOOT EVER AGAIN
( that is why you never run a update during a thunder storm )
Unfortunately, when I rebooted and chose the new kernel in the grub list,
that would be the default that you did not have to do anything to auto boot into
THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM!!!!!
I had been using the video driver available on nVidia.com
the .run is a MANUALL INSTALL!!!!!
i take it you did not fallow ALL the expert advice and use the kmod-nvidia.rpm in the rpmfusion repo
it the RECOMENDED driver and NOT the manuall .run
for the .run you MUST!!!! manually do a bunch of things
and REDO THEM !!!! for EVERY AND ALL!!! updates that include
the "kernel" , "xorg/X11", and "mesa"
EVERYTIME!!!! there is a kernel update ( almost EVERY !!! AND ALL updates for fedora
you MUST!!! reinstall the .run
in a TEXT ONLY!!! boot
now you might also have more issues
if you are seeing the Plymouth boot screen you still have the "Nouveau" driver instyalled and NOT blacklisted
the NVIDIA.run driver will add a blacklist BUT
the file might not be seen by fedora
( this is why the kmod-nvidia is RECOMMENDED )
make sure that the Nouveau driver is uninstalled and blacklisted
rebuild the boot image WITHOUT THE NOUVEAU DRIVER !!!
install the kernel-devel and development tools ( gcc & autotools )
yum groupinstall "development Tools"
yum install kernel-devel
download and save the .run driver FOR your card ( you have to figure that out all on your own using the nvidia site )
save it to /
run the installer
after the installer finishes ( WITH NO ERRORS )
REINSTALL ALL OF MESA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the .run REPLACES SYSTEM FILES!!!!
you have to change them BACK
yum reinstall mesa*
the mesa-devel MUST BE REINSTALLED!!!!!!
personally if you have not been using the .run for 10+ years
USE THE kmod-nvidia.rpm driver !!!!
