I'm not sure if this is GNOME (GDM, clutter, gnome-shell?) but it
started when I grabbed some of the 3.3.92 packages (and maybe a new
kernel). Has anyone reported AMD video issues and can I fix them with
Since a number of updates on Thursday my laptop very quickly boots
into an unreadable screen that is locked up solid. With failsafe mode
I'm able to get to Console 2 (the boot messages never finish in
Console 1), but a corresponding kernel upgrade seems to have left me
without networking, in the current 3.3 kernel or anything back to 3.1
that is still available in my grub menu. To regain my wireless
connection, hopefully I just need to track down the latest Realtek
firmware rpm and install it from a USB stick.
The video problem seems to be kernel-independent, since it exists for
any non-failsafe grub entry, not just the new one. The Radeon driver
has performed splendidly since just after Desktop Summit, when I was
in a similar situation (no video, no wireless). I hope to get back my
Internet connection and zypper update out of this mess.
I now dual-boot Mageia on this laptop, and the 3.3.92 transition went
flawlessy there; unfortunately all of my docs repositories and ssh key
work from openSUSE.
