There isn't enough information here to determine what may be at the source
of the problem.  You may want to post the following information to this
forum:

1) Brief description of your computing environment (e.g. CPU model, OS
version, memory).

2) During the startup process, there should be a startup screen.  On
Windows and MacOS, the screen is a centered splash window.  Under X
Window, the startup appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen.
This title screen should display a small line of text that indicates what
stage of the startup process is in progress.  What line do you see just
before the program exits?
