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.
