    Ok at first I thought my issue may have been related to this with a black screen and a cursor and yes I have ISPConfig installed as this is a test server. everything was working until I reboot that is why I tied this post first.
    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13918&highlight=ispconfig+fedora+gdm

    So I tried everything listed in that thread and linking threads but nothing seems to fix the issue.

    here is what is happending when I try to start the gui.

    in "terminal mode" I try "X" resulting in:

    Fatal server error:
    Server is already active for display 0
    If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again.


    ... trying "startx" produces an identical message as above then a small pause then this message:

    Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keygiving up.
    xinit: Resource temporarily unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.


    Please keep in mind I am very new to linux and know the very basic commands so I really apperciate the help. I have been searching for a fix for couple hours with no luck. Thanks in advance..

    Hi Ganther,

    please try the following:

    Boot the system and afterwards press Ctrl+Alt+F7 - this should switch to the running X-session.

    Best regards,

    Olli

    ok if I do a init 1 then startx the gui loads up

    If I do a init 5 then startx I am getting same error.

    xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.2823

    Fatal server error:
    Server is already active for display 0
    If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
    and start again.

    Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keygiving up.
    xinit: Resource temporarily unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.


    I have deleted the .X0-lock file. any other suggestions any files you would like me to post that could be causing this issue.
