When my computer finishes booting and is supposed to show me the kdm login screen, the screen goes blank. I can access the screen by restarting X with ctrl alt backspace but the TTYs still won't get fixed. All of my TTYs show the Fedora boot screen at its final stage (the blue bar at the bottom of the screen). Anybody else have this problem?

I'm using the ati-catalyst kmod from rpmfusion and the driver itself seems to work fine once I reboot X. The problem arose after a kernel update (3.2.7 to 8 I think) which obviously updated the kmod as well.

IIRC, the latest kernel updates break the ATI driver. It's being worked upon. You can head to #rpmfusion on Freenode for more information.
