FC4-test1 not creating a User Account - Cannot Login


Hi! this is my first post.

Im using FC4-test1-i386-DVD and Im installing this in VMware v4.5.2.8848 so that may have something to do with my problem.

Problem: Fedora is not asking me to create a user account.

It does finish setup, and after the first boot brings up the login screen.

IF I try to login as "root" and use my root password, the login screen goes away and the screen becomes blue and just hangs.

I have this problem if I have SE as Active or Disabled, I tried both.

I can post screenshots if people need/want them.

Please help!


[EDIT] I was able to change the Session to Failsafe Terminal and then login and create a user account. Appears to be working.

I think this is related:
btw I did not have this problem with the stable Fedora Core 3.
