I've just installed two new kernels (I think) via the package manager:

kernel-2.6.30.4-125 and

kernel-2.6.30.4-125-pae

Both showed in the package manager as "upgradable packages" and both now show as entires in Grub.

However, using their entries in Grub, neither will boot to the desktop- they simply stop just before I would expect to see the splash screen.

The original kernel-2.6.30.1-123 still boots fine.

Is there something else I need to do to start x using the new kernels?

What is the difference between the two new kernels (what does -pae mean?)

Happy to provide more information, but I'm not sure what else would be useful.  I'm running Pardus 2009.

Thanks in advance!

Same problem here!

This is what I did: I started in "failsafemodus" deïnstalled my Nvidiadriver
and used the defaultdriver instead. Now  x starts without problems.
(and without desktopeffects of course Undecided)
Possibly a kernel problem?

Thanks for your quick replies!

I'll continue using the older kernel with the nvidia driver for the time being, I think.

There was a problem with the updates. If you update right now, it should start
to work again.

Open package-manager > show upgrades > and then install available upgrades  Wink and look "atolboo`s answer#6 of this Thread.

All working here now.  I had to refresh the package manager to get the new nvidia driver to show up, but having installed it, all is now happy with the new kernel.

Thanks for the quick responses and work by the developers.

Good luck Pjotr- I hope you get it sorted soon

Working now, uninstalled and reïnstalled only package xorg-nvidia-current

Still, strange I needed to do that twice... Huh?
