First boot sequence freezes with several deprecation warnings.


Alright, so I finally got around to installing Fedora Core 5. I'm still a noob to Linux, but here's the problem I'm currently experiencing. Ok, so I reformated Windows XP. I installed it on a 115GB partition (I have a 250GB HD, the rest is for FC5). Windows XP installed successfully (in fact, I'm posting from it right now ). I put all 5 FC5 ISO's on 5 discs (1 ISO for each CD). I have the x86_64 ISO's since I have an AMD Athlon64 3500+. I put the disc in and install it on the remaining space. It installs perfectly fine with no problems. Then I reboot and get to the first boot sequence. It goes perfectly fine until I get to my soundcard information. Right after my soundcard information displays, the entire screen freezes and the pointer changes into a small rectangle. I can't move the pointer or press any keys. I waited about 15 minutes cause I thought it was just part of the installation, but nothing happened. I rebooted and tried again (maybe it was just a lottery chance of the Linux kernel messing up I thought), but still, the same thing happens again. I have a VIA '97 Audio soundcard that's integrated into the motherboard.

Ok guys, here's the part of the boot sequence that freezes unexpectedly.

At first there's a [FAILED] message next to this line:
Quote:
Checking for hardware changes/etc/rc5.d/505kudzu1 line 23: 1398 segmentation fault /sbin/kudzu $KUDZU_ARG5

Do you guys think the line above failing has anything to do with it? Here's the part of the boot sequence that freezes:

/usr/share/firstboot/modules/evk.py:74: GtkDeprecationwarning: gtk.TRUE is deprecated, use TRUE instead
internalVbox.pack-start(internalVbox.gtk.TRUE.5)

Note: The C comments (/* and */) are mine and are not from the boot sequence.

Does anybody know why it freezes? Is there something wrong with my soundcard? Did I install something incorrectly? Again, I have a 64 bit processor and the 64 bit ISO's, so there shouldn't be a conflict there. Is there something wrong with my partitions? Thanks.

New update guys. I've gotten past these errors. But I'm still experiencing some problems. I added a number 3 at the end of the kernel/vmliunz line in the boot prompt options in GRUB. So I boot up, start an interactive startup, and say no to kudzu, which skips the service. I get down to the local service, say yes, and it prompts me to enter a password. What the heck is the login for the local service? All I remember is setting a root password for FC5 and not a login. Can I somehow skip the local service? What's the login for it? Is it required? Thanks, and at least I got past all those other errors.

Ok guys, I got past the login!

I logged in as root and typed in my root password (I know, I know, I'm a noob).

Except there's one problem...

What the hell do I do now? As soon as I login, the localhost #~/ starts...I have no clue what to type in to get into FC5. Anyone want to tell me what I do from here? Thanks.

Have you tried
Code:
startx
or maybe ctrl-alt-f5 (or f6)?
Have you configured X properly? Do a search on this site for configure x fc5 or something.
