Re: X Windows has disappeared on FC6 install.

Installed FC6 yesterday with many headaches...

Finally, everything seemed to be working perfectly well, including reboots. No errors.

Rebooted this morning with all services starting properly. Logged in on splash screen, expecting to get to my gnome desktop; instead I get a console screen reading:

Fedora Core release 6 (Zed)
Kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 on an i686

[hostmane] login: [blinking cursor]

What the heck is going on?!? Where did X and gnome go? What can I do to get my desktop back?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for the responses. I kind of found what was happening; it could be a bug in FC6, but I'm not sure. For some reason, the system defaulted to a safe mode session, despite the fact that there are no errors being reported in any logs, and drives, raid, etc. are all fine. I simply clicked on 'Sessions' on the login splash screen, and changed my default session to 'gnome'. gnome session started without a problem, and reboots go directly to gnome sessions now. However, it is strange that the default session type seemingly changed on its own. I've never had that happen, and I've been with FC since version 1.
