Just curious, big red- did you see the same "PME Error" statements as I did with quiet boot disabled? Everyone seems to be having problems with the 2.6.27 series kernels, and for different reasons. If you do have the PME Error, I'm curious as to what hardware you're sporting.
I'm running on a Sager NP2090 Laptop, with the following specs:
Core 2 Duo T7100
nVidia 8600M GT (Was running with 177.82 series drivers installed from nVidia's website)
3 GB of RAM
Fedora 9 x86_64 and Vista x64 Dual-boot
I'm thinking its either a problem with the 177.82 series driver, or perhaps I accidentally downloaded a desktop driver that doesn't support power management features, and is therefore confusing the system (I'm not sure if nVidia's linux drivers have differently branched laptop and desktop drivers, and if they support hardware checking like the Windows ones do). Or, it could be some other problem entirely that requires me to use akmods.
Anyway, I successfully installed Fedora 10, so I should hopefully not run into this issue again. However, I really want to use the 180.xx series drivers to get access to video acceleration, and I'm wary of doing so until I figure out this problem. Any more info would be appreciated.
