1) Disable the graphical login managers (gdm/kdm etc.,). Now log in into the
console prompt. Type either startx or xinit. Do you see any errors there?
Does X start without any problems?
2) Is your lo interface configured properly? What is the output of ifconfig?
Please post your /etc/network/interfaces. I would like to see if the lo
interface is configured properly.
