Description Jason Merrill 2009-03-12 14:42:21 EDT
Description of problem:

Booting the test day live image (http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/rawhide-i686-20090312.0.iso) gets me to the GDM screen, but then login stops at a black screen.  I switched to VT 2 to kill the X server, and noticed there were 6 running, for :0 through :5.  I brought this up on IRC, and halfline suggested that I change HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network to foobar and also add that to the entry in /etc/hosts.  Doing that fixed the multiple X servers issue, and also fixed login.

He said he had checked in a fix this morning, so this report is just for reference.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
