2. Why is there a pause between the bootup, and the graphical login screen?
It seems like X kicks out, and then restarts. It seems a little "un-refined",
for lack of better words.

proposal is to have a '--hide-login-screen' (or whatever) option to gdm so that gdm can start X, but not start the greeter. Then, rhgb could


easy answer to this with the current initscripts model (as well as other
factors, I'm sure).

All of this avoids the real issue: rhgb is incredibly slow. It takes this thing 6 seconds to appear and put up the panel that says what's starting up in initscripts. And while it's thrashing, coming up, it's impeding the startup of other services. It's ill-advised; you can go to SVGA or the framebuffer faster and with less footprint to put up a blue background and a newt panel...

Add to that the complaint that rhgb starts and X server, stops it, and allows gdm to start another. If things remain as they are, rhgb should start up X, do it's thing, then hand over responsibility of that X server to gdm.
