Unable to start gnome or kde(as of Fedora Core Test 2). I get the

the Alsa driver and the esound. I had gnome problems since RH 9.
With Fedora Core 1 I could start kde by using gdm in root and then logging
into root with the session being kde. Kde no longer works with this method.
Would a reinstall be a good recommend as opposed to an update?
I'm running a Athlon XP1600+ /w 512 mgs ram, FX5600 (an Abit Siluro 256mb
although I have gotten x to work (I dont see it being the video card)
Are you by chance using the nvidia supplied binary only drivers?
BTW, your question might be better suited for fedora-test-list.
