I was using Fedora 11 for the past few months. It was working fine. I upgraded yesterday to Fedora 12 and now every time I boot up, the fedora logo screen comes up, the "f" is filled up and after that the screen goes hazy. I was expecting the login screen but nothing comes - the system freezes sort of.
I upgrade my system from 9.04 to 10.04, then when booting, I get the purple wallpaper and mouse, but nothing else, No login menu. I can hopefully connect to my system with ssh from another machine, I update everything, upgrade, etc etc, try to boot on recovery mode, and clean packages and so one...Nothing happens, still no login menu.
I did an upgrade on my system yesterday. After the completion of the upgrade on restarting the system the computer enters tty1 mode straight without giving me the GUI login screen making it difficult for me to work. The question does now is what could have caused this to happen ? Have i gottten something wrong somewhere?
To switch to tty7 mode i hit the key crtl+alt+7 but it gives an error message about an unknown user even after login in with my username and password on tty1. Start the computer on recovery mode and selected the option correcting broken packages and it produced a result requiring me to download some new packages. I have a huawei e1550 modem which i use to browse in Nigeria. I want to know how i can connect to the internet on the tty1 after insertion of the modem so i can download the necessary packages it requested on issuing dpkg command
I upgraded last week from Koala to Lynx and my attached display is now blurred. Os: Lucid Lynx 10.04 with all updates Hardware: Dell Inspiron 1521 with an Envision 19" attached lcd display. Problem: blurred moving lines that move across the screen.
I just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 beta and now I get the login screen - but after logging in, all I get is a blank screen with a black bar on top showing just the time on the top right hand corner. If I CTRL+ALT+F1 and reboot using the command line, it restarts showing mythbuntu on shutdown. Im have nVidia GEForce 8600 - is this due the X crashing? I tried all these - no change
I upgraded from fedora 6 to fc10 using a net-inst iso. Everything went great however when I rebooted gnome wouldn't start up and there were other error messages, however thats not my current question. I figured id login as root, I put my pw in and the screen briefly flashes and then back to login prompt. The flash is a message saying something about no shell. Same occurs when trying to logon to my main user account. I can boot to single user and see that all my partitions are there and the data is there. My password file has the shell at the end of the entries.
I would like to post my problems here with Fedora 11 regarding that I am using Dell inspiron 1525, Dual core-N series. I have got two problems:
First;- After I updated my system, I have experienced a a login problem , which is each time I try to login and insert my password correctly it seems that it will login but it comes back to the same login screen as if I did not do anything, but after too many times it works.
Second: I read some posts in a website that talks about configuring the RPM fusion "Repo" and I did all the steps posted there , but after that whenever I try to update or download anything through terminal.... it appears the following:
About a week ago I used preupgrade to make the transition F14 -> F15 on a x86_64 workstation.
The system has been fully updated ever since, but I'm still not able to login either with KDE or Gnome. With KDE, the login process freezes before completion, whereas with Gnome I get the "wallpaper" behaviour reported here: [URL]
Funny though, I can login in the KDE failsafe session.
I could find no other thread reporting this problem and am at a loss on how to start diagnosing the problem. If anyone out there has any suggestion, I'd welcome it...
what's the difference between a "regular" KDE session and the failsafe one? They both look & feel the same to me...
I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?
This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:
Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.
In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.
I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.
My system is Dell 4300S with 1.4 GHz Pentium processor, recently upgraded to 1 GB RAM,120 GB WDC1200JB hard drive Sony DRU-720A DVD/RW drive, ATT plugandshare wireless adapter with Atheros AR5001X chip, ATI Rage 128 Pro Ultra TF video card, and Actiontec V90, and 56KFlex modem (Agere System Venus). I attempted to use preupgrade to upgrade from Fedora 12 to 14 using wireless connection. It seems, that upgrade finished successfully, except I am not unable to get to a GDM login. I updated SElinux to selinux-policy-3.9.7-10 and selinux-policy-targeted-3.9.7-10, and touch /.autorelabel overnight, I was able to login using GDM once. And that is all. After I boot, after Ctrl+Alt+F4, I can login to terminal.
I just installed Fedora 13 x86_64 using default settings (after not using Linux for few years), everything went well, but the following question bugs me: All fonts used by Fedora GUI on my LCD (1680x1050 native resolution) seem a bit blurred, stretched, not as crisp as displayed by Windows on the same LCD, and also worse than what I see on my Mac notebook. Fedora fonts use more screen pixels and at the same time provide lower subjective quality, it hurts perception of the whole system . I wonder if it's a general problem with Fedora fonts quality, or I can tweak it somehow to get more aesthetically pleasing results.
I am unable to login to kde after upgrade to fc14 from fc13 as user , the splash screen works for seconds and returns back to login screen, but I am able to do as root I also managed to login to KDE (failsafe session) and also I am able to login as normal user to gnome desktop
I made a live-usb with Fedora 15. During installation the progress bar goes almost until its end and then it hangs up. I don't even get a login screen. The only responsible key is Esc which shows a console with two errors from nouvaeu, but i already figured it out that they are harmlessI tried gnome live-iso and kde live-iso - the result is the same. I installed Fedora 14 in the past on the same computer and no problems there.Ant ideas what i can do or check? I really want fresh install of Fedora 15 and Gnome 3
Since this afternoon every edge on my screen has gone fuzzy. It looks like a horizontal blur, I have attached two small screen shots of this window (although the problem is not limited to firefox, even just icons on the desktop looked smear towards the right). I do not think it is a problem with the screen because when I turn on the computer all is well. The problem only starts at the login prompt. I have had this problem once before using a previous version of fedora. Back then I did find a solution online but now I have spent my afternoon looking for a solution, trying any suggested change to xorg.conf and rebooting without success.
What does not work: Changing the resolution or colour setting Some Xorg.conf changes adding mode, a different depth, not sure what else. Here is a copy of etxX11xorg.conf # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
Previously I have a hard disk running OpenSUSE partitioned as follows: Code: /dev/sda1 = swap /dev/sda2 = / /dev/sda3 = /home
I redid the default partitioning scheme that Fedora tries to use (no LVM crap). Basically told it to make the above layout and to format swap and slash, but NOT to format /home because I want that data. I had it go ahead and install grub on the MBR of this HD as well. The install seems to have went ok and it rebooted. That is when the first problem comes up. I never see grub. I just get a black screen then a bar at the bottom that progressively turns blue, which I assume is Fedora loading.
This is all well and good, then it gets to the login screen (GDM) and I try to log in as root and it tells me "can't authenticate user" hangs for a bit, then goes back to the log in box. I try to get a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F#) and nothing. So I guess I have 3 problems in order of significance: - Why no grub? - Why no virtual console? - Why root can't log in?
Normally I would edit kernel option line at the grub prompt to boot into single user mode and fix the problem, but can't. I was able to use the "rescue mode" on the Fedora DVD to accomplish this, but have not had a chance to figure things out any further. I don't think having a /home created by another OS would prevent root from logging in since root "home dir" is /root.
I have recently upgraded my System from F13 to F15.
I use an ATOM Board with an Intel N10 graphic chip. It worked without any issue with F13.
F15 boots up, I can see the blue screen with the Fedora Logo. Then it changes to the background picture of gnome and thats is. No login screen. I checked the logs but I am unable to find any hint, why gnome does not boot up completley.
I used pre upgrade command then executed the upgrade (it took more than 4 hours) and I had a success message at the end saying that I have now to reboot. But now I have no more Xorg working, and I had to boot from the live CD to mount the LVM disk to report this problem (thanks to the live CD).
Looking at the Xorg.0.log the reported error is: (II) Primary Device is: PCI 01@00:00:0 The PCI device has a kernel module claiming it. This driver cannot operate until it has been unloaded (EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error: no screens found
How I must do now to get back Xorg? Check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. I tried to remove and re-install Xorg, without success. Then I installed kmod-nvidia and executed nvidia-xconfig. The log says that I have to configure the kernel without nvidiafb support, but I don't know how to do it, and even if it is a good idea. I noticed that if I remove the /etc/X11/xorg** files, I can use startx but no much more.
I upgraded my machine to F15. I was asked to reboot. From that point on, the system will not boot. I get to the blue screen with the 'egg', about 1/3 of the 'egg' turns white, then the screen goes black. No cursor, nothing.
I hit shift to get the Grub menu, tried booting my old kernel. Same result.
I tried burning a F15 live cd and booting that, but I get a desktop background with no mouse, no docks. It doesn't seem to respond to anything I do. I can boot it in the "basic graphics" mode, or whatever you call it, but I would rather not overwrite my entire hard drive with a fresh install.
I have seen references to some kind of recovery mode provided on the live cd that might repair my install without wiping my data, but I can't find it anywhere.
My hardware: Dual core Atom D525 Intel NM10 chipset
I installed Xubuntu 9.04 on an old Acer Aspire 1200 (PIII, 256Mb of RAM). The install went ok and I was greeted with a login screen at the beginning of every new session.
I later upgraded to Xubuntu 9.10 and since then I've lost the login screen. All I'm left with in the shell (tty1) for which I have to put in my login and password before I can do anything. Typing startx at the prompt starts the desktop.
how I should reinstall GDM or its XFCE equivalent?
Fedora 12 randomly crashes after a fresh install.Everything is left at its default during the installation except I install KDE and not Gnome.When I try to boot I hit esc at the splash screen to see where it hangs, but it never hangs at the same spot twice. Sometimes it hangs and sometimes it restarts. Its crashed everywhere from starting udev to the login screen.
I've been using kubuntu for the past year because I have the same problem with F10 and F11. I dual boot with Windows 7 for games.

I was running 10.04 until yesterday, when it occured to me that I could upgrade to 10.10. So I went to Software Center, set it to get normal releases and left it to do its job. The upgrade appeared to go without a hitch and I rebooted. The login screen appeared. But just before I could click on my username and enter my password, the screen went blank and a second later the login screen was back. But then just before I could click... Undeterred, after half a minute of frantic clicking I did manage to click on my username and get the password prompt. This time, the login screen didn't go anywhere. Yay. To cut a long story short, this is now my standard logon procedure. However, the plot thickens. I appears that instead of 10.10, I ended up with 11.04, Natty Narwhal, which 'was released in April 2011'. If I download an .iso of Maverick and install it over my current version, will it leave my data unharmed AND reset everything so that it works again?
I have used Ubuntu since 7-4; I now have 10.4. However, in the last week I have been taken to the login screen three times. This could be potentially calamitous. Ctrl+Alt +Backspace have by default been disable since 9-4. There is no way I am pressing atl+Prtscr +K. I wonder if there is a new zap command in 10.4, and if so, how to disable it. I have never found the need to go back back to the login window. I am generally using the command line when doing this.
I attempted to do the upgrade from 11 to 12 with the Preupgrade Assistant. Unfortunatly something went terribly wrong. Everything went well, excluding the size of partition error, untill the reboot. I did have to remove two previous installs. Now grub gives me an option to upgrade to Fedora 12. When I select this the screen runs code quickly and the screen goes blank with alot of disk activity. Then nothing. Is there a method of recovering this install? I am fairly new to Linux Administration and I am just knowledgable enough to mess things up.
I have just did an upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. I am planning to go to 10.04 . After the upgrade everything was ok but I noticed the GRUB was still legacy. So I updated my GRUB to GRUB2. Now when I boot, after entering my logon-id and password, it just brings me back to the login-id screen (to logon on). Any indication of what is wrong and how I should fix this ?
I have no encryptions. [added comments] Currently reading thread about login loop bug with 9.10 Followed instructions about possible missing pre-release update but even if it did do updates, I am still login screen looping. Doing additional researches until someone answers with the fix. did : CTRL + ALT + F1 switch to one virtual console sudo service gdm stop
