This could be caused by a few different things. Are you running gdm? If so try booting to init 3 (as opposed to 5) and deleting any stale pid/lock files. The Gnome that shipped with Red Hat 6.x does not clean up after itself after a "improper" shutdown. You may also want to check to make sure you have some free disk space.

Unhappy GDM Error!!!!!!!!!

:smash: For all u guru Linux users.......because of my job I have been forced to become familiar with Linux. I attempted to install Linix 7 on one of my test laptops and play around for a while but after installing it and the machine rebooted I got this error:

According to /var/run/gdm.pid, gmd was already running (1021) but seems to have been murdered mysteriously.

Someone please tell me how I can get around this I attempted to stop the services for gdm since it said it was already running. That didn't work. I also stopped services on the lockfile also.....unsuccessful there too.
