Description of problem:

i'm not certain whether this is a Nautilus or Gnome problem.

on initial installation, both root and user accounts appear normal. i can set up
most functionality without a problem.  on next reboot, root login hangs for
several minutes at the Fedora splashscreen, but does finally progress to a
desktop.  user login shows the Fedora splashscreen briefly, then displays a
blank desktop.  no other response after several minutes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
this system was updated to latest release, through yumex.  kernel is

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter root, rootpassword; enter user, userpassword
2. for root, wait several minutes; for user, wait much longer
Actual results:
root login finally progresses to desktop display.
user login never gets beyond a blank screen.

Expected results:
normal desktop, for each login.

Additional info:
Dell PW410, dual 450MHz cpus, 1GB Ram, 73GB HD. circa 1998 BIOS, no other
operating system.
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:33:50 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
