Really annoying Linux problem!
When I start up Red Hat 7.0, the screen starts flasing. It does it about 5 times then spits out this message:
"According to /var/run/gdm.pid, gdm was already running(###), but seems to have been murdered mysteriously"
The ### is always a different 3-digit number. It does that flashing and message about 10 times, then spits out a new message:
"INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes"
Then everything's golden for 5 minutes, and I can do anything. But after 5 minutes, this thing interupts everything and starts flashing my screen again.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Has the install ever booted correctly? Have you tried reinstalling RH7?
I've never seen this problem before ..maybe it is possible to boot to failsafe mode and kill/or delete that pid in /var/run directory. I would simply try a reinstall.
Yeah its already installed.
Ill try deleting the pid file. THANKS!
