Gnome AND KDE hanging on startup!
A couple of days ago I found that GNOME would freeze when starting up. When I selected GNOME from the session type on the login screen, the GNOME splash screen would get as far as saying "Starting Metacity Window Manager" and then hang. This seems totally out of the blue as I can't remember anything strange happening while I was using GNOME the day before.
For the past few days I have been using the KDE, until ... today it too stopped working. When I select KDE from the session type menu and log in the KDE splash screen doesn't even show up, and the system just hangs. I think I may have an answer to the KDEs behaviour, as it froze on me yesterday and I was forced to shut the PC down manually, as even pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1 wouldn't work.
I am now forced to use the Xfce desktop. Please help, I'm running out of window managers!
I'm using Fedora Core 3 with a Pentium 4 3Ghz machine.
