I have the same problem, gdm reinstall or $ startx without any success.

(In reply to comment #4)
Executing 'startx' at runlevel 3 actually does work in my case.
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2011-06-27 18:04:18 EDT
Confirming, same issue here on current Rawhide. My greeter.log shows the same backtrace as Christoph's (except less complete, I don't have debuginfo packages).
Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2011-06-28 13:14:48 EDT
propose as F16 Alpha blocker.

Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2011-06-28 13:57:57 EDT
From the dupe:

"it's a bug in the accessibility stack that gdm is hitting because it gets crashy on fatal-criticals in development versions.

I don't like that behaviour, so I've switched it off:


which i'll build into rawhide shortly."
