Gnome session refuses to start; hangs at splash screen.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem: Gnome session hangs at splash screen when
starting from gdm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. with GDM running, choose "gnome" as session type
Fedora splash screen shows up, no icons appear, gnome just hangs.
Three finger salute will take system back to gdm login screen.
Gnome desktop should load up.
System hanged hard before this started happening. KDE session works
fine. Gnome works fine too if we start a minimal (failsafe?) session
and then type gnome-session at the xterm that appears.
