I have had a Fedora box that serves as a development box, it started with Fedora Core 6 and has been upgraded over a few years and now has Fedora 13. After Fedora 9 I switched to mode 3 or text-only mode since then I have become familiar with the command line and never needed the GUI. I now have an application I want to develop but I have to adjust something graphically so I switched back to mode 5. However, when I reboot I only get a blank screen and no GUI login screen. I thought I would run
yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment and it ran smoothly. I reboot and still the blank screen.
Why am I getting the blank screen and how can I get Gnome's GUI login screen to appear?
