2015-02-01 09:45:09 -0500 commented question Fedora 21 wont finish boot

With Gnome running here, i wont be able to install AMD binary drivers. Already tried all workarounds but somehow it always went wrong. Thanks for the Tipp, I will fill out that bugreport later

Well I already waited in the past 5-10 minutes because I thought it would just take some time. But even after 5 minutes the login screen wont appear

Hey there

I am running Fedora 21 with the latest updates. I upgraded from Fedora 19 to Fedora 21 at the release date. Everything went fine but I got a problem. When I start Feodra it will finish the boot animation and stops there. I wont get the Login Screen, I am just seeing the Fedora Logo. But when I boot into Recovery erverything is fine and here comes the weird thing: When I press reboot in Recovery Mode and boot then normal, I dont get that problem.

Here is the log when I directly boot to Fedora and it hangs on the Logo: http://pastebin.com/n3XzszAH

Edit 1: Forgot to list my hardware: Amd A10-5750M with a integraded Radeon HD 8950G and a Radeon HD 8970M. Running 3-18 Kernel, Open Source Radeon driver and Gnome 3

2015-02-01 04:18:56 -0500 commented question Fedora 21 wont finish boot

@hedayat I dont know exactly what you mean. When my Laptop is shutdown, and I press power and choose in Grub Fedora (3-18, same with 3-17 before), I get the bootlogo animation and the animation will finish (I see the full fedora logo) and thats it. The login screen wont appear. But when I choose the Rescue Mode, the system will boot normaly. And here is the weird thing: When I am in rescure mode and press restart and then boot Feodra (3-18) it will boot normally without this "error". And when I am in Rescue Mode and choose shutdown and then power on, its the same.

2014-09-01 14:03:34 -0500 asked a question Updating kernel, mesa and Xorg

Hello

Right now i am running Fedora 19 with all updates and since I have a Radeon HD 8970M, I am forced to use the Catalyst Driver since the open source driver doesnt support my graphic card. So i was thinking about updating meas, xorg and the kernel to the latest version in the Fedora 21 or rawhide repo.

So my Question is, should I do that or will it break something because I am still running Fedora 19 (my concern goes mainly to the kernel, i dont think that xorg or mesa will break anythink) When yes, what is the best way to that? ( I know that there is a way to install packages from other repos without permanently enabling them, but I forgot the right command/cant find it on google) And besides that, should I update any other repos?

Side note: I dont realy whant to upgrade to Fedora 20 or 21 directly because when the open source driver are not working I would have to downgrade since the catalyst driver is not working on F20/21 becauce of the Gnome Wayland support

2014-09-01 13:46:14 -0500 answered a question Installing skype error

Weird, I installed Skype via the rpm package for Fedora from the offical Site and had no problems, running Fedora 19 but since you allready installed Skype I dont think you want to try this way.

About the libQtWebKit.so.4 error: Normaly all installed lib are found in /usr/lib (32 bit libs) and /usr/lib64 (64 bit libs) so its weird that skype is looking for the lib in /opt/skype/skype. You could try to copy the libQtWebKit.so.4 from the /usr/lib (its there probably in a subfolder, called something like qt, or just use the search to find it faster) folder to /opt/skype/skype

And about the output after you did the yum update: It looks like that some of your Packages need some specifig libs/packages. For example in the first line, vlc-core requires libass.so.5()(64bit) So i would try installing this lib. The same goes for all other libs/packages which are required

2013-10-22 11:57:56 -0500 answered a question Difference between xorg x11 drv ati and drv catalyst

Thanks for the Answer. And the Website (Phoronix) is also a great Info.

I was just confuised, because there are also the akomd drivers and I wasnt sure if its the same with the xorg drivers

2013-10-22 07:03:03 -0500 asked a question Difference between xorg x11 drv ati and drv catalyst

Hi there erveryone

Since I am running Fedora 19, with an Amd Hd 4200 grafic card and Minecraft isn't running that good, I have looked around if I can find some better grafic card triver. (I have an Toshiba Statelite C660)

Fedora comes with the xorg x11 drv ati and in rpm fusion there it is an xorg x11 drv catalyst 13.9.1. And in the description it says: " supported are the Radeon HD 2xxx series to the Radeon HD 6xxx series" So i was woundering where is the difference between the two driver and if the catalyst one is better.

I whanted to it with right click on the desktop to create a shortcut. As far as I remember there should, or was one. And I think I am right now too stupid to get into the Desktop folder in Nautilus.
