eroors on boot

I have fedora 15

IT will not boot to a desktop instead has the following error.

Started SYSU: Daemon for quickly looking up Virtualmin Servers from procmail. Started LSB: Start or Stop the Webmin server.

This appears to be a shell screen. I can hit alt f3 or f2 and go to a new shell window.

This is my webmin init.d script.

!/bin/sh chkconfig: 235 99 10 description: Start or stop the Webmin server



Provides: webmin Required-Start: $network $syslog Required-Stop: $network Default-Start: 2 3 5 Default-Stop: 0 1 6 Description: Start or stop the Webmin server


start=/etc/webmin/start stop=/etc/webmin/stop lockfile=/var/lock/subsys/webmin confFile=/etc/webmin/miniserv.conf pidFile=/var/webmin/ name='Webmin'

case "$1" in 'start') $start >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null RETVAL=$? if [ "$RETVAL" = "0" ]; then touch $lockfile >/dev/null 2>&1 fi ;; 'stop') $stop RETVAL=$? if [ "$RETVAL" = "0" ]; then rm -f $lockfile fi pidfile=grep "^pidfile=" $confFile | sed -e 's/pidfile=//g' if [ "$pidfile" = "" ]; then pidfile=$pidFile fi rm -f $pidfile ;; 'status') pidfile=grep "^pidfile=" $confFile | sed -e 's/pidfile=//g' if [ "$pidfile" = "" ]; then pidfile=$pidFile fi if [ -s $pidfile ]; then pid=cat $pidfile kill -0 $pid >/dev/null 2>&1 if [ "$?" = "0" ]; then echo "$name (pid $pid) is running" RETVAL=0 else echo "$name is stopped" RETVAL=1 fi else echo "$name is stopped" RETVAL=1 fi ;; 'restart') $stop ; $start RETVAL=$? ;; *) echo "Usage: $0 { start | stop | restart }" RETVAL=1 ;; esac exit $RETVAL

Would like to fix this as soon as possible.

Well, a typical server wouldn't actually be booting to a GUI -- it would be booting to a black login screen, as most servers are designed to be accessed remotely, not locally.

The output you shared above actually seems normal!

Using a browser, are you able to access port 10000 on your server?

yes, But i still need it to be able to boot to the desktop if at all possible

Well, that's a Fedora question... and I'm not really sure of the answer :-)

Doing a little Googling, I see Fedora's documentation on that here:

Hopefully that'll get you going in the right direction!
