I attempted to install Fedora 11 x86_64 via the DVD iso.
When I ran the installer it fails to boot into X so I had to use the text-based install. That worked fine; however, when my machine rebooted to go into Linux it dies. The boot has only worked once (the first time) but I couldn't start x ('startx' was not a valid command). I ran a yum update to see if that would help any of my issues but my linux partition no longer boots at all. It dies after the Fedora progress bars complete.
Is this a common issue? I don't think it is because I haven't found anyone else having this issue. If it helps, my video card is an nVidia GeForce 7900GS. I have 2 installed in my computer if that makes a difference.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I have searched all over the place for anyone else having a similar issue but I can't find anything related.
I did find the 'nouveau.modeset=1' argument that I will try out but I'm not 100% sure how to use that argument during the install.
For the record, Fedora 10 x86_64 was my OS for the past several months and I experienced no issues with it. Worst case scenario is I'll be going back to 10.
Note: For the time being I will reinstall 10 so I can get my machine up and running again. My last failed attempt seems to have botched my boot loader
