    Login Screeen Freezes in RHEL 6.. unable to boot in X windows.

    Hi guys,

    I'm just months old in Linux World, So please bare with my ignorance.

    I got a Rhel 6 machine, was working fine untill yesterday.
    Now i'm unable to boot in X windows, able to boot into single & multiuser mode though.
    No error message during Boot. When login comes, screen just Freezes.
    unable to use the shutdown options in the page as well.
    But able to get the X windows, if i login using multiuser mode and give STARTX.

    Thanks for your Time. Any help appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to LF,

    Anything in the syslog?

    tailf /var/log/messages
    Do you have an RHN and internet connection, so that you can run updates?

    The problem was with Selinux. I changed the context of some folders which caused this issue. Works fine now.

    Thanks for your Time.
