I have Redhat 6.1 installed on my system. I tried to patch the latest
version of XFree86 onto my system. To do this I turned off the graphical
login in my system. After following the instructions in the xf86-howto, I
tried startx and the system boots into X.
Thinking that everything is fine, I turned the graphical login back on.
After restarting the system and tried to login, after entering my user name
and password, the screen flickers as if X was restarting and it returned
again to the graphical login screen, instead on the usual KDE desktop. Now I
do not know how to solve this problem.
I am rather new to Linux and do not know the problem lies in which config
file. Can anyone please help me with this?
