I have a brand new Fedora x86 virtual machine in virtualbox. All I did was run yum-update, install gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel make, install guest additions and group install the mate desktop. Now, half the time when I boot the virtual machine GDM doesn't load the user list or anything else. All I get is the fireworks background. I have to do ctrl-alt-backspace to get x server to reload and then the user list comes out. Is this normal or a virtualbox problem? Virtualbox is run on a Fedora 16 x64 machine.
