Me too had same problem when with FC1 when i tried to upgarde the gnome
from 2.4 to 2.6 from tgz files .
In my case i have damange the Display mangeer setting GDM so i was not
rhgb prg output .
so i had tried my luck as i have alter the line in inittab as
"x:5:respawn:kill -9 39;kdm "
as my rhgb was havin process id of 39 at boot sequcence
and i have used kdm instead of gdm as i was having problem with GDM
so morle of story is check you DM diskplay manager setting (KDM, GDM )
