crash logs ?

My fc3 box stopped responding.
Just quit while i was working
now it wont boot to gnome
it gets thru interactive startup then to a flipping hourglass and stays there
last nite i did a yum update, the first update since i installed fc3
i rebooted this morning after the yum update and it seemed ok
however the term window yum was running in was frozen..no prompt or response
I can hit alt-f3 and get a term window
where would the logs containing any hints be.

try looking through the end of /var/log/Xorg.0.log or even /var/log/messages. runing dmesg might also give you some indication as to whats going on. if you run across something in them that seems odd let me know and i will do what i can to decipher it.

if you log in as a different user all together does it still do the same thing?

i get a ton of those in my apache logs. they will say somehting like default.idaXXXXXXX.. etc.. thats code red 2. nothing to worry about... it can only effect unpatched IIS servers.

ICMP is an echo request commonly known as ping. someone is port scanning you. get used it, it happens a lot. cyberkit appears to be the app that doing the port scanning(?) but ive never heard of that. looks like a windows script kiddy.

i gave you the only log files i can think of that might contain what your looking for. only other thing i can suggest is booting to runlevel 3 and maybe disabling your network before going into X using ifdown eth0 assuming that your network is on eth0. if not ifconfig will tell you its device name. to start gnome from runlevel three type startx not init 5 becuase if it hangs you can just hit ctrl-alt-backspace and get back to where you were without having to reboot.
