F7)  They should each switch to a different tty.From the tty, you can log in and kill the X session on tty1.  Then, you can do things such as deleting the Gnome configuration (or moving it) for your user and trying again.Can you please tell me where the gnome configuration is? Thanks.Also how do I kill X sessions? I'm a minor noob due to not having these problems before. m (HowTos)
