here is a possible workaround....

edit the file /etc/inittab

look for the line "id:5:initdefault:"
and change it to "id:3:initdefault:"

now you will be presented with a text based login screen.

after login, give the command "startx"

if you like, you could run this command "echo startx >> ~/.bash_profile"
which will automatically run the startx command after login.

does that get you into a working desktop environment ?
