I was trying to install gnome-system-tools and the many dependancies it has. the last one I tried to install was pango apparently it installed, and then I rebooted becouse the rpm install windows would all of a sudden dissappear without saying weather or not anything was installed.
I havent been able to start my computer since. I only get to the blank screen with an x. Once and a while a text dialogue appears and says "The display server has been shut down about 6 times in the last 90 seconds, it is likely that something bad is going on. I will try again to restart the display server in 2 minutes.0"
What the hell happend???!!! nobody else seems to have this problem!!
The effect is that your system will have integrity, it does not now.
Existing configuration files that have been customized should not be replaced. Rpms are configured to create an "xxx.conf.rpmnew" or "xxx.conf.rpmsave" file, if an existing configuration file is found.
You will need to log off and restart X (ctl-alt-backspace), then check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors. Repeat the process if additional missing files are reported. If it continues on more than you are willing to put up with, then a re-install may be easier.
I have the same problem as yorgmeister. I am running Ubuntu 6.06, and i got it when i last update. When the login window is supposed to pop up my GDM crashes few times and the linux switches between terminal and GUI.
I dont know what couses this, but i believe that it starts to happen when i configure the "login window" and reboot.
I am posting you my Xorg.0.log file and i hope you will be able to help me without reinstalling my Ubuntu.
My graphic device is Ati Radeon 9550, CPU: AMD Semprom 2800+.
