prefdm respawning too fast, stopped error message in NGE Linux

I have installed ngelinux, and when i boot NGELinux, sometimes i receive below error message and not able to boot in init 5 mode.

Apr 21 10:08:09 localhost init: prefdm main process (2819) terminated with status 1
Apr 21 10:08:09 localhost init: prefdm main process ended, respawning

If you check the log files inside /var/log/gdm, you will find the issue is due to gnome power manager application:

To resolve the issue, boot the system through ngelinux cd, and then do chroot to your root filelocation:

#chroot /mnt/nglinux /bin/bash

Now install the application “gnome-power-manager” and turn off the greeter using below command as root.

# yum install gnome-power-manager
# gconftool-2 –direct –config-source= xml:readwrite:$HOME/.gconf –type bool –set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_enable false

This would resolve the issues with your system and it should boot successfully.
