GNOME freezes on boot


Well, the title says it all. when I use
Code:
startx
the gnome-session begins(I changed .xinitrc), It shows the splash screen, then it just sits there. I can get back to the console, kill the gnome session and try again, but it still freezes. Anybody know why?

Your hostname is probably set wrong.

Check out /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf

You need to have 127.0.0.1 in there pointing to your computer's hostname... That's the most important thing.

If gnome can't resolve your name, it will do funky stuff.
