gdm not loading
I have Fedora 2, Xorg, and gdm installed. I had everything working fine, but I did a lot of tweaking trying to get GL graphics working (reinstalling Xorg, changing xorg.conf, etc). Somewhere in the process I messed things up, so that when I boot the system with runlevel 5, Xorg loads, but I can't do anything - no gdm, I can't Ctrl-Alt-F1 to the command line, and the cursor moves but there's no window manager running. I can boot in runlevel 3 with no problems, and then running gdm from the command line works fine. If I run Xorg from the command line, the same thing happens as at boot: there's a blank screen and nothing happens, although I can now get back to the command line (it doesn't show any errors, just my Xorg version). Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks for any help.

Try to kill your X-server with <Ctrl+Alt+Backspace>. Then start Xorg with the startx command. That's the way it works on my (Slack) machine.I\'m so tired .....

Your Xorg.log file could be of help to get anything that isnt going OK!
also, ctrl-alt-f1 doesnt kill X ctrl-alt-bacsp will
this way if GUI craches, simply type that ans STARTX after....
