Gnome installation issue


Using centos 6.2

i have installed gnome using

Code:
yum groupinstall windows-desktop desktop-platform x11 fonts
everything for the install went fine... but when i type the startx to get it running the screen blanks flashes goes a pale blue as if gnome were starting, but then closes itself leaving me with a message of

Code:
waiting for x server shutdown
i tried creating a tmp file of what happened to gather more info using :

Code:
startx  /tmp/startxlg
but nothing is created so this is all i got atm? anyone seen this before?
