help help ....gdm freaking out
Posted on 2000-04-08
I have Red Hat Linux 6.0 and the power went out one day. When Linux boots back up (tried rebooting a few times), the screen flickers for a couple minutes and i get the error:
"According to /var/run/gdm.pid, gdm was already running (21913), but seems to have been murdered mysteriously."
"INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes."
Then after 5 minutes, the screen flickers again for a couple minutes and the whole process starts over again. How do I fix the problem?? I had this happen once before and I fixed it by reformatting and reinstalling. I really don't want to have to go through that again. Thanks for any help!!
