Helo to everyone, i upgrade a machine running centos 5.4 to 5.5 this morning. After the update the X start i saw the pointer and a black backgroud only the desktop doesn't appear.
The machine is a barebone with this configuration

I had to do the same thing for my laptop.
Option "DCC" "false"
did not help, but changing from "intel" to "i810" did.
