1) Get a login to text mode as a user
[ startx ] if no go, [ gpm]
2) If this doesn't work login as root, and command [ startx ] if no go then [ gpm;exit ] it.
Do any of these methods crash? no, then you "should" be fine with gpm and it might be the package you installed....
3) If yes then you need to look at the script that goes by, look at what the errors are.
as root check your Xconfig, emacs OR vi /usr/X11/xorg.conf . (assuming slackware)
cd / ; slocate xorg.conf
