i succeeded to start FC5 by Grub hand instructions, but when I log in
I get the following message (sorry for the bad translation):

Session lasted less than 10 seconds.If logout was not explicitely
requested, maybe that some problems occurred during installation or
disk full.Try to use an emergency session to try to recover the
problem.

/.xsession-errors

/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your sessionwith wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running /usr/bin/sessreg -a -w
/var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h ""-l ":0" "antonio"
/usr/bin/ssh-agent: error while loading shared libraries:
libcrypto.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory

What shall I do?? Re-install might be the fastest option....

Any comment welcome
