Hi

Ok tried the suggestions I uninstalled gdm reinstalled the caribou
dependencies, then reinstalled caribou and then booted into blfs but I get
the same oops error.

But this time however when I booted using runlevel 3 and ran startx Gnome
shell worked!

Now I just cant get the gdm greeter screen to login, only the gnome
wallpaper, I checked the gdm logs they've not been modified But I have
atttached the new xorg log file annd also the link to it incase the attach
doesnt work
