FC5 Display problem..

I have Intel P4 64 bit,1GB RAM,Intel 915 chip board.sata harddisk..
During installation I just gave enter..IT goes to anaconda installer page.then just hangas there is display on the monitor.SO i desided to install through text mode.

After i completed my installation,from from harddisk i have no display.the display just hangs.The run level is 5.

Should i pass any extra kernel parameter..

I have also tryied 'noprobe' and 'resolution=1024*784' during installation but not works.
Pls note that FC4 is working properly..

I presume you have an onboard graphics chip (or don't you!!). In any case can u post your xorg.conf file?? It's in /etc/X11 directory.

I had the same problem, the exact same problem.

what you need to do is enable yum updates via (read how to do that on the site)
then run the command "yum udate" (as root), it'll download the newest kernel and the newest drivers.

My problem was that I had a nvidia graphics card that FC5 misinterpeted. I needed to do the following as well:

"yum list *nvidia*"
"yum install everything that had to do with nvidia drivers"

now everything should work, except one thing that still bugs me:

The boot up screen (the nice graphical one before the login screen) is still messed up. You can go around this problem by editing the GRUB boot loader config /etc/grub.conf and removing the "rhgb" command. This will keep the boot up plain and simple (with just big green "OK"s).

Even if you don't have a problem with the graphics card but with the monitor or something else the newer distros (that you install with yum), will detect much more hardware correctly.

I hope it works,
