I have a really bad problem. When I try to start my computer and go
into linux (RH7.0), I get this error message:
"/var/log/gdm.pid says gdm.pid is in use, but has been mysteriously
That's not the exact message, but that's all I can remember (I'm not at
the computer in question either)
What led up to this message was I would login with a non-root id and it
would seem like X restarts. It kept doing this repeatedly until I
rebooted, and then I got this error message.
The error message will repeat over and over with a certain number
changing each time, until I either hit CTRL-ALT-DEL or hit the reboot
button. The screen would blank out, flicker the message for a half
second or so, and then blank out again.
Is there a solution to this problem? Right now I can't even get to a
"It is only the wisest and stupidest that cannot change."
