Re: Stripes on screen after installing Fedora

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I downloaded the i386 version 9 of fedora install dvd among others, that is the one I am trying with now, and shall certainly try that command to see if I cant get you guys some more to work with. This is, at the moment, all greek to me, an really do not understand any of the commands you all are suggesting.. I only type them in as I get them, in the order they tell me to;) It feels like some of you think that I actually KNOW what I am doing here.. I dont! So it would help ALOT if you would be a bit more spesifick in your instructions;) I NEWER expected it to be this complicated, I am just a guy who thougt it would be fun to try Fedora instead of Windows.. So i thought it was just a matter of putting in the DVD, and click yes a few times then VOILA I had Fedora installed, but...

To install Fedora, I download the install x86 (32bit) and install it. In general is a matter of clicking the "next" button - easier than Windows in fact.
To make the help more effective, say the version of Fedora you are
using, Fedora 9, 8, ... You kernel version and relevant hardware
information that you can get running the command "dmesg | more".

Sorry, I think I said it wrong before.. I have not been able to actually install Fedora! I just come as far as trying to install, where I get all this error messages.
Is there anything at all I can do to make this work now??
Seems like I have tried anything there is, and still not getting any futher! Could anyone please tell me exactly how I am supposed to install Fedira, and if I have to write something, please tell me exactly how I should proceed with that too, as I am suspecting im nit doing this right?!

I have a serious problem with (all) Linux distributions included
Fedora. After installing or use of live dvd, I cannot see anything but stripes on my screen. I have a pentium 4 with 1GB RAM and Nvidia card.
I have tried to install the latest Nvidia driver, but to no help at
all. I have tried many versions of Linux, and also both the i386 and
the one for 64, but all with the same result!!!

You don't mention the Fedora version, but, assuming that you are trying to install F9 I can tell you that I had similar issues regarding nvidia cards (only with F9). I'm also assuming that you nvidia card is a relatively a new
one IOW it wont need the nvidia-legacy package.

As a first, you can try to update all your system (latest xorg- packages make difference), also you need to install the livna nvidia drivers and then
install the kmod-nvidia package.

1. as root do (you can do this in a text console):

# yum -y update && reboot

once that computer has rebooted the graphics mode probably is now working ok, if not, then do the following command to try to set a graphics mode with
a vesa driver:

# system-config-display --reconfig --set-driver=vesa --set- resolution=1024x768
2. even if you don't have graphics mode yet, do the following to
install the
nvidia drivers from livna:

# rpm -Uvh

# yum -y install kmod-nvidia && reboot

3. Now hopefully you'll have now a graphics mode running, if not we have a few
more moves:
remove the xorg.conf and create a new one with the nvidia utils:

# rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-xconfig
# reboot

4. As last resource (if at this point you dont have a graphics mode) do:
system-config-display --reconfig --set-driver=nvidia --set- resolution=1024x768

5. If all fails, please don't desperate, give us more details on your equipment and the messages that you are getting from the above procedures.


best regards
