I know that this problem was discussed in more than one forums, but I could not find what should I do with my case

Running FC7. I installed several packages last night. Today, when I booted up the computer, I got this message:

Failed to start the X server (your graphical user interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem.

I tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 where I get the X server failure and go to a command line.

1- cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
CODE
(WW) warning , (EE) Error, (NI) Not Implemented, (??) unknown, (EE) unable to locate /open config file

(II) Loading Extension MIT-SCRENN-SAVER
(EE) Failed to load module vga (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No Such file or directory
(EE)<default pointer>: Cannot find which  device to use.
(EE)xf860OpenSerial : No Device specified
(EE)<default pointer>: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for Input device <default pointer>



2- Then I run : Xorg -configure
CODE
Xorg is not able to detect your mouse. Edit the file and correct the Devices.
Your xorg.conf file is /root/xorg.conf.new.
To test the server, run 'X -config /root/xorg.conf.new



3- Then I run Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new
part of the long output was :
CODE
Fatal sever error:
failed to initialize core devices

With my box FC5 at work (Active Directory), I have been able to access the net , I have not logged in with my AD account , I logged in as username : root and password : forum,,,fake one (I know security implication, I have done this for test ).

First time when I tried to open a browser, window popped up asking me username and password for authentication to use internet (I entered my username: zillah and password:ad123 my active directory account,,,fake ), then I was able to browse the net.

When I tried to use the command below (via Terminal):

[root@local]#yum install yum (yumes),,,,It did not work, I believe because of the authentication (ISA proxy) that I mentioned above.

With the proxy , I followed the link below :

http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/sn-yum-proxy-server.html

1- I added the line below to /etc/yum.conf
CODE
proxy=http://proxy.ewrq.au:8080,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, because our ISA uses 8080 proxy
proxy_username=zillah,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,fake username
proxy_password=ad123,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,fake password


Then I tried to use this :
[root]#yum update yum,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I received this error :

Loading "installation" Plugin
Settingup Update Process
Setting up repositories
Can not find a valid baseurl for repo:case
Error: Cannot find valid baseurl for repo:core


2- I removed the configuration above and I tried these:
CODE
http_proxy=" http://zillah:ad123@proxy.ewrq.au:8080 "
export http_proxy
yum update


[root@localhost # yum update yum
Traceback (most recent call last):

I have got Linux FC4 , I forgot password for root.

How can I recover it through rescue CD1 (I did it through GRUB), but I am looking to do it through CD1

I used FC4 CD1 to boot PC in rescue mode

1- F5 for recue mode

2- Type in : rescue mode----press Enter.

2- chroot /mnt/sysimage

3- Sh-2.95b # passwd root,,,,the output was :
Passwd: system_u:system_r:anaconda_t is not authorized to change the password of root

4- I tried type in : passwd (with out word "root" see step 3)

Where is my mistake ?

but did you try resuming the install after rebooting?

I can not resume installation after rebooting, because the error message stuck where it Linux screen says: "begin installation". If I reboot I will end up with the same message in the same place

I downloaded FC4, sum sh1 was ok, Media test was ok.

I tried to install it on 2 Desktop and 2 laptop, I received the same error message:

"Error informing the kernel about modification to partition /dev/hda3- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won’t know about any changes you made to /dev/hda3 until you reboot – so you should not mount it or use it in any way before rebooting".

Note: /dev/hda3 in my case is root (/).

I found many links for same error message but with solution.

I have got 3 OSs on my laptop Latitude Dell D600 (Windows , FC3, Solaris 10)

I have got no problem to boot in any of these 3 OSs.

After while I tried to boot into linux I received this error message :

Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.

Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):

Repair file system1#




After I spent one hour of googling I found this :

((If the system crashes (due to power outage etc...) then upon boot the system will check if the disk was unmounted cleanly. If not you may get the following message:
Unexpected inconsistency; Run fsck Manually
...
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot

Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D for normal startup):
At this point enter the root password then run fsck:
(repair file system) 1# fsck -A -y

***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****
(repair file system) 2# exit ))

The link for above is this :

http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTuto...alSysAdmin.html


I run the command : fsck -A -y then--------According to what the link advised

I rebooted the laptop, I received this error message:

mkrootdedv: label / not found
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
mount: error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed:22
umount /initrd/dev failed:2
kernel panic. not syncing
Attempted to kinll init!

What should I do to solve this issue?`

Hi All

I experienced weird problem,,,I tried to download FC3 (CD3 only) many times from different computers and from two different sites,

Fisrt one:
http://iso.linuxquestions.org/

Second:

http://fedora.lsu.edu/dist/linux/core/3/i386/iso/


and when I scaned it using RAV antivirus online , I found this message:

F:New FolderFC3-i386-disc3.iso->FEDORARPMSMAILMAN_.RPM;1->(RPM)->(GZip)->./usr/lib/mailman/tests/msgs/nimda.txt->(part0000->(IFRAME0000) - HTML/IFrame_Exploit* -> Infected
