Re: FC3 Graphical Install and Boot Problems



Well finally after getting it to boot in runlevel 3 I was able to modify inittab to always do that. I've narrowed the problem down to the radeon kernel driver. If I go into xorg.conf and change the driver to vga, I can get X to start properly and display things mostly right, but with oddity: it only works in 8-bit color mode (since that's apparently all vga supports), and no matter resolution I set it to, I get this 640x480 screen "zoomed" in on the upper left hand corner of the screen (i.e., only showing the upper left quarter of the desktop). Its odd that the kernel radeon driver won't work, since it did for me in FC2.

New problem. Any new ideas anyone?

I tried re-running the installation using "nofb" but no change. I also
removed rhgb from the grub line, but still no change. It boots up and
into what I assume is the firstboot program. Is there a way to set
grub to tell the system to boot in runlevel 3 or anything?

Simply append a "3" (without quotes) to the end of the kernel parameter line in grub edit mode.
