first FC15 boot -- oh no!

When I try logging on after booting up FC15 for the first time... oh no!
It's extremely irritating to get a cute message that offers no useful
information whatsoever.

My impression from cursory scanning of this list is that gnome 3 doesn't
work with a lot of hardware configurations. Is this likely the problem,
and if so is there a way I can log on to KDE, which presumably still
works? Any suggestions as to how to proceed would be appreciated.



I have had the same problem with my first new F15 install.  So far there
has been no solution, and I am close to giving F15 a burial.  I am not
sure whether to use a different platform or just use F14.  Take a look a
this bug link for the details.

If you have KDE installed you should be able to use KDE at least I could
on mine.  If you did not install KDE you will have to get to a terminal
interface and install KDE with yum.  If you need more details just let
me know, and I will try to give you a hand.
