Re: f10, gui login spawns multiple X sessions, fails


After acting on the xserver's log please look in bugzilla may be it's a
bug report on this issue.
Several question :
- if you use the nvidia card, what drivers are installed, do you use
proprietary binaries ?
- did you modify anything  in plymouth  or  setup  kernel frame buffer
from the grub config ?
- are you sure that the intel card is disabled from bios ?
