init 5 error will not start gome UI
I have installed centos 5 64bit server. The graphical install went just fine. Same goes for the first boot. Once the first boot made me reboot, that is where I have the problem. The os starts fine I get the graphical startup, I see all the services starting. I then am prompted at a shell login. Normally I should be loaded into my gnome desktop. I just sit at the login prompt. So I log in as root. Then issue a startx and I am told that the server is already running.
If I change the init to 3 and then restart the server, at the shell I issue startx and all is fine.
Once I change the run level back to 5 I have the same problem.
