Please see some of my contribution to this thread.
I'm having a similar issue to Antonio's...I've got a fully updated F9
install, and I noted that as of a couple of kernel releases ago, my
workstation, which boots to runlevel 5, does not actually appear to start
up the X desktop either. Instead, it switches to TTY7 with a blank screen
and blinking cursor.
What I need to do, to get around this, is ALT-F1, log in, init 3 and then
init 5 in order to get the system to actually bring up the X login screen.
