gdm freezes on login
If for some reason I am not connected to a network when I boot my machine, (if my wireless card fails to get a lease from my router) gdm will not start when I try to login. It just freezes up. I switch to a console terminal and login and fix the network issue then restart gdm, it works fine. What's the deal? I don't want to have my machine be worthless and have to fall back to windows (have a dual boot Vista/linux machine) when I stray from my network. Is it something to do with gconf-2? What the heck is going on.
