Re: FC5 doesn't start up right.

1. No.  I have not EVER been able to boot straight into FC5's X.  I always have to boot into level 3 then run gdm once I log in as root (is there a way to do this with a script until I can get the problem fixed?)

2. Motherboard:
        Base Board Information
        Manufacturer: ASUSTek Computer INC.
        Product Name: A7V400-MX
        Version: 1.03
        Serial Number: 123456789000

dmidecode gave me that info.  I tried running the "Hardware" tool but many of my gnome apps don't work.

3. I did an upgrade from FC3 to FC5.  FC3 was having problems (with yum/python)  There seems to be different versions of different parts of python on my system so it doesn't always work right and I thought that would be fixed by upgrading.  I upgraded and ran yum and then the problems started.  (Even after the upgrade I couldn't boot right into FC5, had network problems and all... wireless only)

Hi Poohba, 

Some questions you will need to answer before anyone can help you:

1. Were you ever able to get FC5 to boot into X? 

2. What motherboard and graphics card are you using? 

3. Did you do an upgrade from FC4 to FC5 or is this a clean install?

4. Do you have correct permissions on your box? (see your error log
below) If you did a clean install, then permissions should have been
correctly set by default.
