Upgrading Fedora 12
 
Hello,

I had fedora 12 working nicely and tried to add Compiz. That has caused my laptop to hang with the cursor blinking. I can get to the virtual windows with Ctl-Alt-Fx keys. However I am not sure what to fix.

I had run Dmesg and it is complaining that it can not locate the Nvidia driver. I believe it mentions Nvidia.ko but will need to verify that.

My thought was that if I just did an "upgrade" maybe that wold restore the GUI and I could go forward from that. I am trying to get awaay from the MS world.

If I attempt the upgrade is it feasible to upgrad from Fedora 12 to Fedora 12 or will the system puke ;>)

I am learning and hope someone has a better solution.

Regards,
Ron

I'm not sure what you mean by getting to Virtual Windows, but if you can get to the Desktop, did you try turning off compiz? Under system --> Preferences --> Desktop Effects?
