Dell Inspiron 6000, Centrino (Intel 2200 WLAN), 512 MB, 1.6 GHz, ATI
X300 
all packages are up to date - except kernel. Because of problems with
VMware I'm using version 2.6.9-34.0.2.EL.
hal = 0.4.2-4.EL4
gdm = 2.6.0.5-7.rhel4.12

I looked at yum.log - no changes since Sep 01. But the problem first
appeared yesterday.

The only thing I changed yesterday was deactivating ntpd.

If I boot into runlevel 2 and use "startx" the system works fine. If I
boot into runlevel 5 and disabled hal before, the system works fine,
too.

Only if I active hal and boot into runlevel 5 the system hangs.
