config is there. 

the X server error is (to the best of my transcribing abilities):

GDM:Xserver not found /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -audit -0 -auth

/var/gdm/:0.Xauth -nolisten tcp vt7

Error: Command count not be executed

Please install the Xserver or correct GDM configuration and restart GDM

- I'm also getting a ton of audit avc denied errors. Same issue or
something else? /etc/sysconfig/desktop was empty (actually had a couple
of hexdecimal characters) is this, too, correct? I tried sticking in
DESKTOP="GNOME" and that didn't help (or I didn't do it correctly- vim
is not, shall we say, intuitive).

Happy Holiday if you are off (we celebrate Independence Day on July 4 in
the US, an exercise in grilling food, shooting off fireworks, parades
and sunburn)
