    Centos Boot Trouble


    Can someone please help me with my following problem. I installed centos server with a gnome desktop. Every time I restart my server it loads to a certain point and then it gives me a blank screen and then eventually shuts down, after a few restarts it loads in just fine, I log in as root and do the work that I need to do then when I click on logout root it gives me the same problem blank flashing screen and eventually shuts down (does not take me to the login screen) The other problem I have is when the server eventually loads and I get to the login screen it requires me to login before users can connect to the server I set network etc to start automatically is there a way to setup so that I do not have to login before the users can see the network.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What happens if you change the GUI to kde? Also, which display manager are you using?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    You have to install KDE for that but I don't think its necessary at all.

    Could you post your server's configuration here?
    Code:
    su -
    lspci 
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post the output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
