Installed XFCE and Now Can't Boot- Fedora 11


I installed XFCE on my fairly new installation of Fedora 11 in a desperate attempt to get my sound working. But, now it boots to the Fedora logo where it should be followed by the log in screen but this screen never comes up. I have the option of entering in some commands before I boot. What do you think I can in order to get this thing booted?

Ctrl+AltF12/F11 to get to console. Then startx manually and see what errors you get, btw did you upgrade your system as well after/before installing xfce?

That did not seem to do anything. And I had been changing some things to try and get my sound working but I'm pretty sure the last thing I did was boot out of Gnome, into Xfce, and then rebooted and now it's stuck.

Ok when you get the grub menu edit it and put 3 after "ro" so that it becomes "ro 3" and then you should get the console.
