Description Daniel Walsh 2005-05-03 14:01:55 UTC
Description of problem:

  [ -w /var/gdm/.gdmfifo ] && echo "BOOTUP_ERRORS" > /var/gdm/.gdmfifo

Causes my machine to hang on failures

Seems there is no one else on the other end of .gdmfifo it just hangs.  I was
booting to level 3 and this was happening.
