Hi;
 I upgraded from test to FC6 via DVD.
Worked fine.
Then I changed the devel repo to:
http://fedoraproject.org/mirrors/fedora-core-rawhide

and did a 'yum upgrade', also worked fine.
Now when I boot up it hangs with:

STOP SIGN
"The greeter application appears to be crashing.
Attempting to use a different one."
OK box

after a bunch of retries:

"The dsplay server has been shut down about 6 times in the last 90
seconds.
It is likely that something bad is going on.
Waiting for 2 minutes before trying again on display :0."

My video card is a radeon 5200se.

xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nv"
        VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
        BoardName   "nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
EndSection

thanks

A bug in gdm-2.17.0-1.fc7.

Upgrade to gdm-2.17.0-2.fc7 should fix it.
