Xserver crashing on autologin


Hi..my default settings on Gnome is to automatically log in via the gdm..which is running FC4. Ever since I tweaked ntsysv for a faster boot up..the X server just can't seem to log me into the desktop..the machine hangs immediately post the graphical loading of services..

startx is working fine when I init 3. Anyone shed some light on this one?

Ah, tweaking...it's a double-edged sword. You'll learn to use it judiciously. It sounds to me like you turned off something in the default runlevel (I think it's 5 for RH-based distros) that the X server or Gnome needs. What I would do is go back into ntsysv and re-activate whatever services you disabled. Just as a general tip, anytime you make a change like that, write down whatever it is you did so you can back out easier later. HTH!
