only the 4 workspace icons and the trash can. No other buttons or menu
icons get drawn.

Same thing happened here.

Are you using f13-beta with compiz? There is a bug in xorg that locks
up the display and keyboard when using compiz. The fix is here:

or in short grab the relevent xorg files and do a "yum --localinstall"
of them.

yum --localinstall? yum has no such option there, used rpm -Uvh *.rpm after
wgetting the files.


Many thanks. Fixed grub.conf while I was in the level 3 mode too. Rebooted,
looks good. Thanks Wolfgang.

Cheers, Gene
