I upgraded from FC10 to FC11 yesterday.I had no problems using FC11 after I looked into the bootloader (not intuitive - Ha!).Tried to boot up this morning; and things seemed to work well until I tried to call up Firefox (added a few themes yesterday).The window pops open; but the computer freezes on the spot with an alarm (generic "beep", w/o the finishing "p").Tried it with Epiphany; and I get the same results with the exception of actually getting to the Home Page.Yum works for the most part - I reinstalled Firefox (no effect); but couldn't reinstall epiphany (keeps saying "there is no such package - did you mean 'epiphany'". No typos on my part - go figure). Doing Software/Package Updates (via System Menu) freezes the box as well.Did it with the system monitor on. It doesn't appear to be related to CPU Usage.
Had a FC10 liveUSB and used it for awhile (e.g. to check out the forums). After giving my ISP some grief about downloading speed, immediately received a note from their Abuse Department, saying that my machine had been infected with a virus and had been sending spam emails (post upgrade to FC11).
Whenever I get to the dependancy check, it gets up to 99% and appears hung. I am in text, not GUI. Any idea why or if I just need to wait longer? I waited about 1/2 hour. Also, on newer versions, there seems to be no text install option. I saw in the stickies there is this option, and I was wondering how to get to it? I hit the function keys to get different menus while installing fedora 10 on my laptops but just can find a place to type text. I'm no guru, but I've been around the block and I'm just faster at the old text way. Old fart you might
I had Fedora11 (default layout) running on a separate hard drive (winXP on the other drive). After the FC drive failure I replaced the drive and did a fresh install again. This time I tried a custom layout to keep the /home on a separate partition. The installation went without a hitch, but on first boot the system hangs with "Verifying DMI Pool Data......"
XP boots fine though. Looks like grub doesn't get loaded. I can boot with the installation cd and get into recovery mode, everything seems fine on the fedora disk. Fdisk result:
1 is the first partition so windows finds it nicely. Before install, i unplugged my hdds so that grub wouldn't get confused. I told the installer to put the full install on sda3 with no swap space. I checked (advanced button on summary page) that bootloader is being installed to the usb on dev/sda (sda since no other drives attached). This should put it in the MBR (i think?)
Seems like I pressed all the right buttons huh? Is there a way to diagnose grub and see what's wrong? is there a reason grub may not initialize properly from a usb drive?
I was having the dreaded black screen hang during install but got that figured out. Read [url] for my first problem.
Now that I've finally gotten it past the blank screen, it starts the install but then hangs while checking the PCI cards, I included a photo of where it hangs, and I don't have any PCI cards installed.
Here are the specs on my computer: Everything is brand new, TOTALLY from scratch build. Mainboard is a MSI NF980-G65 AMD Phenom II 6 core processor 8GB DDR 3 Ram 1 Samsung Solid state hard drive 2 Samsung 1TB HD Samsung iHAS424 DVD/CD drive
I'm using the on-board graphics which is Nvidia GeForce 8 series
So much for an LTS release being stable. I try to boot from a LiveCD and it hangs on "Checking battery state..." I searched the forum for a solution but didn't really find anything. This is an old desktop machine with Intel onboard graphics -- nothing too fancy and nothing it should have a problem with. Yet it's not working.
I've lost my boot manager ,can't boot from harddisk ! I've installed F11 x86_64 kde livecd on a partition aside with FC10 and windows xp, created a /boot ext3 partition + a " / " ext4 root partition and a swap partition shared with F10.I've tried to restore booting windows xp with the windoze restore cd with the "fixmbr" tool, but it did'nt fix i
New install from downloaded DVD. sound played after install. Installed rhymbox, which tried to install the various nonfree packages. I didn't have the keys installed so it failed miserably. From various websites I've used yum to install nonfree packages to support mp3. I now have both movieplayer and rhymbox which have no sound. Even more strangely, rhymbox 'slider' which follows the playtime remaining, simply doesn't move? Tried remove/re-install rhymbox to no avail.
FC11 i386 dvd iso image passes pgp verify. Burns fine and verifies fine under nero. Boots fine and verifies fine on my athlon system and installs just fine. Not one issue at all. 1374 pkgs install without issue. Take the same disc put it into my dell poweredge 2850 (dual xeon) and the disc fails to verify.
Even if I go ahead and try to install, it will boot and go through the menus. Then on package install at some point it will say one is corrupt and halts the install. Yet ubuntu 9.04 installs just fine on it. So I don't see how it could be the dvd player itself, though not 100% ruled out.
Was using preupgrade from FC11x64 to 12x64. Preupgrade caused alot of problems like /boot not enough diskspace. After some searching found the steps and preupgrade proceed happily but after reboot got kernel panic grrr.
Took 3 days to find another machine to download and burn the FC12x64 disk. So I booted via the FC12x64 disk and selected the 1st option to install/upgrade. I thought it is upgrade and so choose replace my existing linux system however it wiped out everything on the disk. I have some important data in my home directory. I think it is in LVM, not a partition like /dev/sda1. How can I recover them? Was using stock settings.
I installed FC11 from installation cds twice and I'm having a problem with Firefox freezing the system. The mouse cursor will move but nothing else is responsive, including mouse buttons and keyboard.I checked the media on every disc and they all check fine.I never had this problem with FC10. I tried upgrading Firefox -- with the necessary dependency upgrades too but without success.I tried to downgrade to FC10 Firefox and ran into a great big hassle with that.
I cannot install FC11 or FC10 on my Dell XPS One/A2420 machine. Every time I tried to install the Linux operating system, the screen goes black and the computer goes no response. It seems to have something to do with the video card--Intel GMA X4500HD Graphics.
I have just completed a dual boot installation of FC10. The install was done from CD's I downloaded from the Fedora website. The installation (seemed to have) went fine, and the machine still boots into XP if selected from the menu. The Fedora installation does not complete the boot process. I have three bars that move across the bottom of the screen, and the Fedora 10 graphic tuns white, and then the system hangs. I have let it sit at this screen for as long as 30 minutes. The screen will blank occasionally, but returns to the same place if I hit a key on the keyboard.
I have it installed on an old HP E800 netserver, running dual P3-866mHz processors, 2GB ram, a ATI Radeon 7000 video card, and three 36GB SCSI drives, non-raid. I know FC10 will run on this machine, as I have a friend running it on another E800 without any problems. This machine does have on-board video that is disabled only by plugging a different video card in (Phoenix BIOS).
Install from x64 DVD seems to have gone OK but 1st boot to welcome screen where user is added always hangs.I've done the install multiple times and no joy on any of them.I'm experienced with Fedora and had 10 installed on the same machine with no problem.Hardware is an HP d5000t.Quad core IntelNV graphics adapter8 Gig of memoryVista on a raid 0 by itselfFedora on a 320 Gig WD drive by itselfSuse 11.1 on another 640 Gig WD drive by itself
I just got a new dell 15z and it hangs on the install "Waiting for hardware to initialize"of the 64bit fedora. I have tried both the nomodeset and noprobe and still to no avail. I have also tried installing ubuntu and the installer will not run so im at a loss. Any ideas from the fedora community.Is there any way I can debug anaconda so I can see where it is hanging?
I can get to a terminal with it in this state and use a ps aux [pipe] grep acpi and kill processes but how do I get it to resume booting after this? Typing startx doesn't work as xserver is already running on screen zero displaying the never-ending loading screen.
I am trying to install Fedora 11 from a DVD. Not the live DVD, the full DVD and it hangs constantly. I had to wait 10 minutes for it to Find Storage Devices, 10 minutes to input a root password and now I am waiting for the drive shares to be setup. It's already been 10 minutes. I verified the disk and everything was fine. Why is this taking so long?
Fedora 11 (64 bit) installation on a clean system hangs at various points. The farthest it's gotten is just over half of the 1035 packages tagged for installation (cd 2 of 6 was the last prompted). At that point, the screen goes black except for a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. Keyboard is dead (e.g. cap/num lock is unresponsive).
Other attempts have stalled at other spots, such as creating the file system - system became unresponsive, no mouse movement, etc.; or installing brasero-libs when it simply stopped installing, mouse/keybd were OK, CD would not respond or eject.
These situations persist when using basic video mode, along with acpi=off and ide=nodma. Below is a description of the hardware in use.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Q6700 2.66 GHz RAM: 4 GB HDD: 300 GB Seagate IDE ST3300831A as master, single cabled with CD-ROM as slave connected to the sole IDE motherboard port Video: NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
Im trying to install fedora 11 from the live CD and when i get into the CD meny where it says "boot" and "press tab for boot options" i press enter. then a bunch lines flash across the screen with a lot of error messages. then the fedora loading bar at the bottom loads. hangs for about 1 minute at the very end. then the GMD screen appears. But the GMD screen is all out of place and its patchy as if my graphics card was causing some kind of error
