Strange Desktop Over-Lapping


Hey,

I have to manually start gnome-session in X as it appears.

I really don't know where else to go. Help?

Info:
CentOS 5.4
Code:
$ uname -r
2.6.18-238.5.1.el5.028stab085.3

I've seen recommendations to install samba, and look at the output of nautilus, & gnome panel. It's clearly mad, and not talking to itself like it should. Is loopback networking up ('lo' interface)?

Are you missing Libraries? What happens after you try X-Configure?

On RHEL5, if you have considered upgrading, now might be a good time!
