Description of problem:
The session starts up up fine but the startup redhat image remains in the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start X with Gnome.

Additional info:

Stracing gnome-session didnt say anything but gnome-session-properties seemed to
be blocked doing an ioctl like this ioctl(3, 0x541b, [0])

the splash screen you mean?

We'll need more information on how to reproduce this; I haven't seen it or seen
other reports of it.

Yes, the splash screen gets stuck. Especially, on the background wallpaper action.

Notes: This was running over an NFS mounted home directory.

I've since removed all my gnome related configuration and the new defaults work
w/o these problems.

I have the same problem here. Can pedrum@tacitnetworks.com  please send in his
hardware list?

Swapped EVERYTHING - duplicated on second system.

I can run "swapdesktop kde" and kde starts and runs fine.

This is a hard crash - couldn't get in via keyboard - even tried logging in via
the network and ssh.  I found no clues in the logs. Only other deal is I
deselected eveloution from the install. 

One clue is at the end of the install I saw an error about copying a texture
that was gnome related?? (went by to quickly to see.)

I have reverified the media.

I think this is hardware specific or more would be seeing it. I also tried a
swapping the video card to a S3 and had the same problem.
