http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Good morning all. Yesterday, 3.6.2-1 was installed on my laptop (previously on 3.4.11) that is running FC16. The kernel was the PAE version: Oct 23 07:59:03 retsol610 yum[2861]: Installed: kernel-PAE-devel-3.6.2-1.fc16.i686 On powering up the laptop this morning, GRUB showed the 3.6 kernel ok, but once selected, the screen just went blank (completely black) and the disc light showed no activity. I waited for a few minutes, but no joy. I restarted the laptop and booted back into the 3.4 kernel ok. Thinking that the problem may have been in the PAE extension, and given that I only have 2GB mem (HowTos)
