2016-12-21 15:22:05 -0500 answered a question Monitor resolution no longer available after fedora24 update

This all smells like a driver issue that the kernel/x11-driver for some reasons unable to optimize your graphic card. You might try to run some fedora test day cases for intel driver, and do some initial debugging if you can.

Unfortunately, those un-supported Fedora distros going to cause your stuck. There is no way out sooner or later.

Better to fix bugs against those packages in bugzilla asking for newer versions, so the packagers could interactive with your about the requests.

That is really an old card for cutting-edge distro like Fedora. You might get some of better support on distros that tend to work relative better for old hardware using distros like debian stable, slackware. Unfortunately, Fedora was not designed with work well on those old ones.

This is just a kernel warning, so you can probably safely ignore it until you notice anything functioning problems then we can debug further.

2016-12-21 15:21:17 -0500 answered a question kernel panic after grub menu selection

This looks mostly like the initramfs is unable to open when booting, so encrypted driver may not be loaded. Try to regenerate it or re-install the kernel package. Also check if the /boot become full and initramfs might be truncated.

2016-12-21 15:21:17 -0500 answered a question Error during boot Fedora25

If you don't use Virtualization, try to disable it in your BIOS to see if it solves the problem. If you are going to use it, it might be a problem with KVM module that might be helpful to do some bisect to find out what the last working version. Alternatively, you could try some new kernels from testing-update or rawhide.

Feel free to get involve with the fedora design team to draw first blood.

2016-12-21 15:21:15 -0500 answered a question Unable to downgrade fedora 25 to fedora 24

Those packages were never designed to be downgraded smoothly, so there is also a notice to ask you to backup before attempting to the upgrade. if you don't, you may in trouble like this.

2016-12-21 15:21:14 -0500 answered a question Installing Fedora onto USB drive - potential bootloader issues?

Yes, it would boot on majority of systems since the default kernel comes with many loadable drivers. BIOS-install would be a safe bet for back-compatibility especially you have lots of old machines around.

No, it should not mess up with you local machine when grub2 upgraded in your flash drive, since the it was written to your flash drive's boot sections.

The decision is somewhat depends on the speed of your flash drive. If it is fast, you can utilize it for both read and write. Otherwise, it is fine with liveUSB + persistent storage.

You will need kernel-devel-4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64

Does Intel has the source code for the driver? If so, you can compile it for F25 to be able to load.

2016-12-21 13:14:20 -0500 answered a question all programs randomly freeze after last upgrade

I would first try to figure it out if the stall could be reproduced without X. For example, play with sound/video or wget a big file to see if there are stalls.

2016-12-16 13:30:53 -0500 answered a question I get a "segmentation fault" when starting synapse on fedora 25. What to do?

Find out the location of the call. Normally, something like in the root directory. Then you can use gdb to analyse the core with the debug symbols to get something useless lie backtrace, and starts from there.

2016-12-16 13:30:51 -0500 commented answer Startup Failure after installing Kernel 4.8.12-300_fc25

So the next thing is to find out if this is a general kernel issue or X issue. You may switch to text mode to see if the same problem occurs and capture the logs if possible. Add "3" at the end of kernel command line in grup2 like this,

kernel /vmlinuz-xxxxx ro root=LABEL=/ 3

2016-12-15 13:07:44 -0500 answered a question Startup Failure after installing Kernel 4.8.12-300_fc25

Really need to the console log to debug kernel failures. Try to remove "rhgb quiet" from the kernel command-line from the grup2 and then reboot to see if there is something useless.
