This sounds a lot like you're hitting - you might want to follow that.

please update gdm to gdm-3.8.4-2. This should fix your issue.

Unfortunately that doesn't fix it for me. I have the same problem - after login, just get a dark blue screen and the Fedora logo, never get a session. This is when I use fedup to upgrade from F18.

However running the Live CD for F19 does work correctly, gives me a session. So presumably the hardware is supported.

I also tried making a new user account, in case something in my environment screws it up. But that gave the same results.

Also if I install to hard drive from the live CD I get the same problem. So I'm having to go back to F18 until there is some resolution of this problem.

(several hours later) after reading the comments on bug 955779 I installed kdm and system-switch-displaymanager and changed the display manager to KDM. Now I have a usable system. Note: installing kdb drags in an awful lot of stuff - I should have tried one of the simpler display managers.

How do you install kdm and system-switch-displaymanager when you dont get a desktop in the first place?
