Hello all, I have searched and searched until my migraines kicked in to
find this answer and I just can't figure it out.
I have a Sony Vaio T-series (svt13112fxs) that uses a SSD to increase speed
via Intel Rapid Storage Technology. So basically it creates a RAID0 setup.
If i try to install Fedora 17, I have to delete the metadata (i.e. dmraid
-r -E /dev/sda & /dev/sdb) so that Fedora can successfully install. But now
my Windows side will suffer in performance without that RAID setup with the
I managed to the laptop back to its original state but at the cost of
deleting the Fedora partition.
How can I successfully dual boot Fedora 17 with the Windows 7 but still
maintain its RAID setup with the SSD?
Thank-you and have a nice day.
Just wondering if anyone else experienced this problem in the last week or so with Fedora 17.
My machine notified my of updates last Wednesday. I went ahead with the updates. Without warning my screen sort-of flashed and then the machine rebooted. However it would not boot but instead hung (right after the common bad font type message). My machine will boot in level 3 mode and I can run startx in that mode - though it doesn't manage to run the gnome 3 interface.
I've tried several pretty useless changes - useless in that though they came up in google searches they really don't seem to have anything to do with the issue. I've looked at /var/log/messages with some other experts and we can't see anything that stands out. The issue seems to be an Xorg problem and I'm not sure how I can reconfigure. I've tried running: "Xorg :1 configure" but that didn't do anything. I don't see any system-config-monitor or anything like that anymore. So I'm not sure what to do to get gnome 3 back working.
Anyone any ideas/similar issues? As I said I can boot in level 3 and run startx but I still hang on a normal boot.
