Black screen and X cursor
I did a fresh install of FC 5 today. Everything was working great, so I did a yum update and downloaded 200+ new packages. I rebooted.
Now grub comes up, starts FC 5. udev starts, then the screen goes black, the mouse cursor becomes an X which still moves, and nothing happens. /var/logs has nothing obviously wrong.
So I ctrl-alt-bkspace. I get a login: prompt. I type root, and something flashes across the screen , then it blanks and returns with a login:
I tried to reinstall FC 5, but that changed nothing. I'm loathe to wipe it off again, but I need to get this thing done.
