If you install from the DVD and just select the LXDE group, you need do
a little bit of configuration manually:

echo “DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/bin/slim-dynwm” > /etc/sysconfig/desktop
echo “PREFERRED=/usr/bin/startlxde” >> /etc/sysconfig/desktop

The first selects slim as the display manager. This should happen
automatically, but I'm not sure if the bits made it into anaconda for
F11. The second line makes LXDE the default desktop for all users.

Currently there also is a SELinux issue with slim. Slim wants to
access /var/tmp and /var/run but SELinux denies. To see if this is your
problem, you can boot with SELinux disabled by appending "enforcing=0"
to the kernel command line in grub.

However if you installed from the LXDE Remix, I have no idea what the
problem is. The remix does all configuration for you and uses gdm
instead if slim, so it contains none of the sources of error I
mentioned.
