Default first FC15 boot -- oh no!

When I try logging on after booting up FC15 for the first time... oh no!
It's extremely irritating to get a cute message that offers no useful
information whatsoever.

My impression from cursory scanning of this list is that gnome 3 doesn't
work with a lot of hardware configurations. Is this likely the problem,
and if so is there a way I can log on to KDE, which presumably still
works? Any suggestions as to how to proceed would be appreciated.

Could you be more specific? What was exactly the problem?
I had the same impression at the beginning, but now it's fine.

1. Could you please not top-post?
2. No. He couldn't be more specific. When something goes wrong while
gnom3 attempted to start all you know is that 'something is wrong'.
While OP could be more specific in providing some information about
hardware configuration by the way.

Do you have KDE installed? Is your system a fresh install or upgraded
from some earlier fedora version?

I suggest to update everything, that should do the trick.
If you have KD installed, proceed...
Anyway I would try to start the machine with nomodeset option.

Jerry,

I have had the same problem with my first new F15 install. So far there
has been no solution, and I am close to giving F15 a burial. I am not
sure whether to use a different platform or just use F14. Take a look a
this bug link for the details.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=705078

If you have KDE installed you should be able to use KDE at least I could
on mine. If you did not install KDE you will have to get to a terminal
interface and install KDE with yum. If you need more details just let
me know, and I will try to give you a hand.

Jerry,

F15 released a new kernel 2.6.38.8-35.fc15.i686.PAE as well as a bunch
of additional modules. After mine was updated my "Oh No!" disappeared.
I have been able to login via gnome3 and have begun to test the waters
with it. So far gnome3 has a lot of response delays that I have not
been able to figure out, but at least I am there.

Try updating your system and see if that works.

Greg
