Are there any error messages when you run "/etc/init.d/gdm start"
(also check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/gdm.log)?
If that does not give you any further clues then you can change the line
in /etc/init.d/gdm to
Then you will see all the commands as they are being run when you try
"/etc/init.d/gdm start" again. This should tell you what the showstopper
is. (Post the output here if you cannot make sense of it yourself.)
