Default X11 won't start

I'm having an issue when I try to login to XServer; on my KDE desktop if I
try and provide my credentials it spits me back out to the login prompt,
//var/log/messages says:

Localhost pam: gdm-password[1888]: pam_unix(gdm-password: session: session
opened for user by (uid=0)

So i know that the authencation isn't failing because I can login to run
level 3 just fine, it's the gui that flickers restarts. I've checked the
xorg logs and there doesn't seem to be anything unusal in them.

Hmmm... uid 0? Are you logging in as root? Is it set up to refuse to allow
root to log in? Have you checked /var/log/secure?
