Red face GUI hangs


clean installation(autom. partitioning), everything seems ok

installation, start up and then if i try to log on with root or ordinary user account i see splash screen and then system hangs.

1. at startup last line is constantly failing:
mdmpd: mdmpd failed
---rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2003-397.html---

2. cat /var/log/messages seems clean ?

3. Xorg log seem to be clean (i do not see errors with EE)

4. i did "yum update" via text GUI


anybody know how to solve this ?

cheers

your last post at the top says that you are running fedora!
what do you mean that you are switching to fedora!??

i disabled that service and also the screen saver and it worked!
so i guess the problem with my machine was the screensaver apparently

it may help solve your problem or it may not!!....
i'm just trying to help!


if that doesn't work... and you have an nvidia card
then try reinstalling the drivers and verify that you
have the rights settings on your xorg.conf


Regards,
