hello everybody,
i have a trouble here. recently, i have install Euresys into my Redhat OS. after that i have problem entering my linux desktop.
i able to login but.... after login, the prompt screen show up. there was no icon, no bar, no nothing....

and the screen keep on blinking in grey then in the prompt mode and in the grey and in the prompt mode and keep on........

i can login in from the prompt mode as the screen is switching from one mode to another.

I would love to hear an answer to your question as well. I have the same problem with RedHat 8.0 When I boot up, the display just blinks back and forth between the CLI login prompt and a garbled graphics screen (presumably the graphical login screen.) This has happened to my system before. It seems to be caused by an improper shutdown (i.e. a power loss). Last time I searched for a way to resolve it, but could find none. I ended up reinstalling.

If I'm really fast, I can eventually login via the CLI (you have to type in user/password between mode switching).

Of course, I can change the init mode to CLI mode, but I'd really rather resolve the problem without reinstalling RedHat.

Any ideas?
