IIRC, it is OK to install via yum, as long as the only repo you are enabled is fedora-install-media.repo which represents Fedora 8 DVD and left other repo(s) disabled. Then you need to yum install gnome-desktop...


PS: you need to edit manually all repos in /etc/yum.repos.d

Thanks for the support,
I solved it anyway , i got into the TWM display manager and then installed system-config-packages via yum and then installed gnome again from the DVD.then ran metacity --replace ..restored the gnome and its working fine ..
