Can't login using gdm


I'm having a few problems getting gdm to work. When I start 
gdm, X 
starts up OK and the gdmgreeter window appears, but any action 
then take, including login, reboot, halt etc, results in X 
going down and
restarting. The debug output is as follows:

gdm[214]: gdm_main: Here we go...

gdm[214]: gdm_server_restart: Server for :0 restarting!

I installed gdm from a .rpm. I run kdm at the moment which 
works OK, but
would like to switch if I can make gdm work. Any help would be
