Following the instructions on http://fvwm-themes.sourceforge.net/rpm/ I installed FVWM and the required packages on my FC4 system and added a file to /usr/share/xsessions to make it available in GDM.

This worked all fine. However, when I select FVWM from the GDM sessions menu and try to login, the system hangs with a blue screen (well, not THAT blue screen) and the only way to recover is by ctrl-backspacing and returning to the GDM login.

This did not happen when I installed WindowMaker or Fluxbox. Does anyone have a clue for me?
