I was browsing when I got, for the first time, an i3 error. A message saying it had crashed. A small rectangle in the middle of the screen with the message, from where I couldn't move the mouse away. It said to press r, b, c to restart i3 or do other stuff, but nothing worked. I rebooted. After that, I can't see the i3bar on the bottom of the screen. I tried yum-reinstalling i3 and it doesn't work. The i3bar and i3status processes are running. Anyone has any ideas what might be going on?

For some reason, when I rebooted the display name changed from LVDS1 to LVDS-0. Changing that line at .i3/config brought the i3bar back

I think the reason is that your graphics driver (or some other part of the driver/graphics stack) was updated :).
