Default problems

well at the momment i cannot even start my KDE gui.

the computer keeps at the icon and cursor for hours, i hit ctrl+alt+F1 and get a prompt and i have no network connection for some reason.

So my server is worthless, it wont start fully, because my GUI is failing.

i tried Ctrl + Alt+backspace, to kill it but then it starts all over again.

i have tried setting my server to

telinit 3, but that doesnt seem to help anything.

then i change back to telinit 5 and it tries to start my kde again.

Im using fedora 7 64bit on a Biostar K8M800

1. How do i kill the x sesssion to just run command prompt.

2. how do i change a different window manager.
-if i get to prompt can I do a yum install switchdesk?

3. how do i reinstall kde, or uninstall it so the machine boots.

first time i turned it on it came on froze right after a clean install, then i restarted thought it might have just been accident, and it took 20 mins to start, but started.

it went days without being logged out. I restarted after i installed ispconfig, then it doesnt seem to like to start kde again, i dont think it has anything to do with ispconfig.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Default ok

by default KDE is starting already not gnome.

Gnome has never really started on my machine. Just by having it installed but not using this would this mess it up?

i cant do a yum remove gdm

it gives me a could not retrieve mirror list <urlopen (101 'netowrk is unreachable'

Error. cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository fedora.

Please verify its path and try again.
