[SOLVED] Crash at Fedora loading into Desktop


Hi Fedora users..

I finally installed Fedora 11 for Acer Aspire one (AA1-150)... Everything worked well on the petite screen, but if I have put in an External monitor, it started to mess up. So I thought about touching a bit in the xorg.conf file (big mistake!). I used the following xorg.conf,
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Acer_Aspire_One#xorg.conf.
Then I replaced the values to fit my options (in Screen).
The problem is now that I cant enter terminal to reconfigure my mistakes because the system stops working after the fedora-logo.

Anyone got any advice for me?!

Here is some information from http://grumpymole.blogspot.com/2007/...arameters.html

1. Changing Boot Parameters Temporarily

Generally, this is used when you want to try a parameter change to see it is beneficial to your system. When the PC boots up, you will see the Grub countdown, which is set to 3 seconds by default. Press "Esc" to intercept this countdown and go enter a Grub menu. Then

Press 'e' to start editing.
Scroll down to the "kernel..." line (Normaly only one line down). The is the line that tells Grub which kernel to boot with and the parameters to be passed to the kernel when it boots are placed at the end of this line.

Press 'e' again to edit this line.
Move to the end of the line. You will see any existing parameters and can add other new parameters to the end.
Parameters are separated by spaces and are mostly either a single word (e.g. nolapic), or an equation (e.g. acpi=off).

All you have to do is enter the number "1" or the word "Single" without the quotes.

Once you have added the parameter to the end of the line, press Enter to accept the editing.
Then press 'b' to boot using that kernel and those parameters.

Remember, this change is not permanent. At next boot, it will be undone.

Now go back and modify your xorg.conf file.

Good luck

Tried adding "Single" (without quotes ofc.) to the end of the line at kernel and it booted fedora with the same problem :/ Stopping at fedora logo...

SOLUTION: Just remove the "quite" line at the end and add 1, then you will be able to enter the fedora system again
