Forever looping startx


I have a fresh FC2 installed and it works fine. But problem occurs after I shutdown quite a number of system services and reboot machine, I can never get back into XWindows. It loop forever around startx, apparently it depend on some services that I had already closed down.

How could I get out of the loop, I tried Ctrl-Alt-Backspace but no use.

You'll need to boot into either single user mode or into "runlevel 3" (both via GRUB). This technique has been discussed several times here, so if you use the search function, it should pop right up.

Then you'll need to figure out which were the "wrong" services to stop - my guess would be "xfs" since you're having issues with X.
