Description of problem:
Everytime I try to start X, the screen goes to black, and flashes to a
lighter black and then back, and I see nothing. After a while it
completely freezes, and I am forced to reboot. This also happens when
I try to run redhat-config-xfree86. I have had to switch to a text
login, as it would hang when trying to bring the graphical login up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run X or redhat-config-xfree86, or try a grahpical login
Actual Results: I had a black screen, and the computer didn't respond
Expected Results: X or the X configuration was supposed to start
I have an Nvidia GF4 card, if that helps.
mharris: Have you seen anything like this?
Arilyn: Does the whole computer lock up? Does pressing
<Ctrl><Alt><Backspace> kill the X server?
Yes, the entire computer locks up, and no, I can't kill the X server.
The only thing I can do at that point is a cold reboot.

bfox: I haven't seen such a problem.
What video driver is being used?
I just picked the NV GF4 one in the list during the install... nothing
