http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi to all, After today's updates,I got the new 2.6.31-0.86.rc3.git5.fc12.i686 and the 2.6.31-0.86.rc3.git5.fc12.i686.PAE kernels. After a re-boot into each one,I noticed the V.G.A=795 on my kernel parameters is fine,but when Plymouth starts,it falls back to 800X600 resolution and the Fedora symbol doesn't appear.When I get to the K.D.M login screen and type in my password,I get the progress screen,BUT when it gets to the K.D.E Desktop,I just get a black screen with my mouse cursor:confused:.I tried to re-start X,but Alt+Ctrl+Backspace wouldn't work(I do have don't-zap in my xorg.conf).After a re-start, I can get into Windowmaker though,which I'm writing this new post on. I can get to the K.D.E Desktop with the previous kernel(/2.6.31-0.81.rc3.git4.fc12.i686),but I would prefer the latest one.I do compile my D.R.M,the new nouveau D.R.M kernel modules,Mesa and the Nouveau driver from git,I did do a recompile on all them to see if that was the problem,but that doesn't seem to have an effect.I can re-compile again to see what happens. I've looked into /var/log,and I saw something interesting in K.D.M log: Code: X.Org X Server 1.6.99.1 Release Date: (unreleased) X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.18-128.1.14.el5 i686 Current Operating System: Linux mernivia 2.6.31-0.86.rc3.git5.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Wed Jul 22 15:47:06 EDT 2009 i686 Kernel command line: ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_mernivia-lv_root rhgb vga=795 modeset=1 Build Date: 15 July 2009  03:30:53PM Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.6.99-14.20090715.fc12 Current version of pixman: 0.15.18         Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org         to make sure that you have the latest version.
