Cannot run gdm due to undefined symbol in libgmodule
 
Hi Guys,

When I boot my suse enterprise server 11 then system cannot run into Desktop environment. So I have boot into init 3 level and login with root then I tried to run

/usr/bin/gdm an error appear as

/usr/bin/gdm: symbol lookup error: /lib64/libgmodule-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_private_replace

How should I do to fix this problem, please give me advice.

Thanks

you really should NOT be running the GUI as root .That is a very bad security issue

also for suse ,from int3 run startx as a normal user

so boot into test only
then login using your normal user account
then type in " startx "

Thank you very much John,I did startx in normal user as your advice then my linux box display in the graphical mode

but not GNOME. I also check in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager that DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"

Could you advice me how to boot into GNOME. Thanks
