Sam,


What is rc.local?

How would I change or turn off to get it to boot?

Is this an Xserver thing/display problem?

Sam,

I was running fc5 before the upgrade and it was booting okay
leading me to think it might not be 'dectecting' properly.

How can I make it boot properly?

Should I do a full install?
