Description of problem:
init 5 mode loads the kernel and the X server black screen with the x cursor and hangs. The mouse is active but the login screen never comes up.
In init 3 mode startx works for single user mode, however it goes directly to the desktop and not the login screen. Also logging out returns to text mode
I need to be able to log in under X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot system init 5
2.manually start "X"
blank screen with x cursor. Mouse moves the cursor arround the screen but it never makes it to the login screen.
X should continue past the blank screen and x cursor and bring up the login screen.

If X is starting, this is probably gdm's fault.
We no longer support Fedora Core 6 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?
