Hi All, I just upgraded fro Fedora 15 -> 16 using preupgrade, my problem is when trying to boot, the blue screen with whatever that progress icon is that gradually fills with colour appears ok and appears to be doing it's stuff ( hard disk light flashing away and I get the Fedora F in the circle ) - then I get a black screen - no error - just nothing. If I boot to Recovery I arrive at a command prompt ok - no logon just at the prompt as root#. If I then type startx I get the same behaviour as mentioned above i.e. "Lot's of nothing happens" any ideas ? My machine is an old Dell Optiplex 170 which has run all flavours of Fedora for years without a problem.

Hi there, thanks for the link, however my problem is post install and I've never installed proprietary drivers.

I would think you're much more likely to find the solution to your problem over on the fedora project forums than on here though, so worth looking around on there and if your particular problem hasn't already been discussed the ask about it.

Maybe you're right - thanks a lot will give it a shot.
