I had a system fully based on F9.On Thursday I applied some updates
(the day' updates, as I usually run yum daily).
After applying all aupdates and rebooting I got a blank screen after
the start-up procedure.
I could login graphically playing between runlevel 3 and runlevel 5
but system froze anyway after some Firefox use (I don't know if this
is related...)
So basically I had an unusable system, I decided to give an extreme
try installing a kernel from F10 and magically the system worked
again!!!! In the meantime we lost the Crystal webcam as in another
thread... :-(
I am waiting comments by developers (see Bugzilla Bug 454055: Latest
updates prevent graphic login)
Please note that I have another system runing F9 where I installed a
kernel from F10 to solve sound troubles similar to Bugzilla Bug
453471: kernel update causes sound to play too fast

I hope to have explained my situation....
