are you talking about misreading "gpm" for "gdm" or are you talking
about not looking at your logs as a first line of attack?   ;-)

gabe, did you notice the unresolved symbols in your log?  related to
your GL system.   i'm guessing that's the problem.  in fact, i'm
guessing the "splash screen" you see makes use of GL functions.  your
rendering engine goes to grab whatever functions are used to render the
splash screen, and isn't finding them.

that's why you see the splash screen and then "nothing".

this will learn ya to install windows!   :-)

seriously, something had to have changed.  you had to have installed
something.  perhaps delete something?


ps- that is the LONGEST xfree86 log i've ever seen!
