1st time here. Been using and loving kubuntu until kde4, then on ubuntu/gnome until recently when it started feeling not as stable as I'd like. On my hunt for a new linux, I thought Fedora would be my next try as it's related to RHEL.
Anyhow, I installed the Fusion remix
and I'm really liking Fedora!! The install was particularly easy, even when compared to ubuntu. I want to sort out the few problems I'm having so I can stay in Fedora-land and keep enjoying it here.
My big problem is the gdm login. I've done lots of looking around in here and the only hint to a solution was "install kdm". Fusion's google group has an open thread about this issue
. I have looked through /var/log/gdm/:0* /var/log/messages /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/Xorg.0.log (in reverse order). There is only one thing that stands out at all:
Jan 9 22:18:57 hostname gdm-simple-greeter: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5691: widget not within a GtkWindow
Jan 9 22:19:18 hostname gdm-simple-greeter: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5691: widget not within a GtkWindow
Jan 9 22:19:21 hostname gdm-simple-greeter: WARNING: Failed to send buffer
Other than those, there are no big WARNINGs or anything.
Thanks in advance,
PS - my other small issue is that my Win 7 and Ubuntu partitions disappeared in Grub, but I'm not in too much of a hurry since it forces me to use Fedora. I planned on using ubuntu liveCD to reinstall ubuntu's grub2 if some research here in Fedora-land didn't get me a fix.
