I have an own Fedora(16,17,18) spin. My customers have reported that F18 based kick start installation fails soon with "black screen" or "no video" and then it just hangs. I got information that usuallay adding "xdriver=vesa nomodeset" will help to black screen problems.
I just did install FC11 with a Nvidia GeForce GT 220 which has not been recognized, so I had to install it with 'xdriver=vesa". I tried later on to configure it with system-config-display. Error message :
I am using kubuntu on a Thinkpad W510 with a Quadro FX 880M display adapter. I can install 12.04 from the CD, no problem. But when I did sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, I ended up with a black screen. I tried several troubleshooting steps I found on the web, all to no avail.
Oops, you're quite right. In one version in my brain at least, they all used the same target file - which would seem the most sensible given these concerns.So an excerpt: Intel) ln -sf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/display.intel /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-display.conf ;;
Nvidia) ln -sf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/display.nvidia /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-display.conf ;;
ATI) ln -sf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on an Intel DQ35JO motherboard and XFX 9500GT 512MB video card. After installation the desktop looked fine on the Sony LCD TV I have connected to the 9500GT via a DVI to HDMI cable.
Ok, this has been an annoyance for ooooh, a long time now.
Yes, I could just uninstall NetworkManager, config by hand and be done with it, like in Ye Olden Dayse. However, in trying to get with the times, I'm trying to do this the proper, "Fedora approved" way...
