Init 5


I'm having a problem loading gnome desktop
When i type init 5 i get the following error
*******************************
A problem occurred while reading the file /etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua
Error loading included /etc/asterisk/prosody_additional.conf:
/etc/asterisk/prosody_additional.conf: no such file or directory

i installed gnome with yum command then checked Package Prosody 0.8.2-64bit already installed and latest version

I check gnome-about --gnome version and get
"usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/gtk......
runtime error could not open display

Has anyone had this problem before?

Howdy Jeff,
Can you give us some extra details about your setup?
What Distro are you using? (ie Fedora 16, Centos 6, etc) Clearly it's rpm based, but if we can get an idea of what distro we can get an idea of the package versions you have to work with.

What happens if you try to just run a basic X command like xterm?

What yum command exactly did you run to install gnome? I know that gnome has a large volume of packages associated with it. Generally a yum groupinstall "Gnome Desktop" or a similar command based on the distro you are using.

Right off, it looks like you are missing a required package (based on the missing file complaints).

HI GrahamVH

startx looks like it wants to load desktop but then fails
with"failiong back to old probe methood for vesa"
and "failiong back to old probe methood for fbdev" looks like it unloaded moduael fbdevhw as well.
after startX command says
"expected keysum, got XF86TouchpadOn"
"expected keysum, got XF86TouchpadOFF"
"expected keysum, got XF86TouchpadOn"
"expected keysum, got XF86TouchpadOFF" Line 120 of init
I installed GNOME with ""yum install gnome-desktop"
Os was installed from iso built from FreePbx includes Asterisk 11 centos 6.3
Xterm does does nothing
thanks
Jeff

I'm no gnome expert or X11 expert, however, I've experienced this before. I don't know why but it seems the rpm gnome-desktop does not install all the needed dependencies to get Gnome to run. I've always had to do a yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts" to get Gnome to function.



based on http://www.idevelopment.info/data/Un...lInstall.shtml it looks like someone else came to the same conclusion.

After i rebooted the system loaded the desktop like usual with mouse and blue screen but does not have the box for user to click and log in. I thought this may be that there are no other users yet. so i added user to the system but still no log in box.
the only problem i had during install was for # yum -y groupinstall kde-desktop and yum -y groupinstall "Legacy X Window System compatibility" saying segmentation fault for both. Could this cause a problem with the base install of Gnome?
So i tried to yum reinstall kexec-tool but no match for argument, nothing to do.
could this be a resolution problem or The display manager issue? I'm hoping to find the answer here

Hmm, the only time I have ever seen yum segfault was when my system was out of memory (likely due to a malloc call not being checked). Are you getting that when you are in init 5 (with gui) and in init 3? Can you show the output of free -m right after you run yum?

Also do you see any errors in /var/log/messages?

313MB isn't much free but it should be ok.

What's the output of yum -d 10 groupinstall kde-desktop. Just give the last 10 or so lines as it will be a lot of output.

Wiped it clean again and started with just the base install of yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"
With out any optional gui packages. Its all working. I just need to add user now.
In previous post shows output of free -m. but the numbers seem off. I believe the system as 1 gig memory
what memory are we checking when free -m is typed?

Thanks again
now i can begin my jurney down asterisk lane

Howdy,
I was mainly looking at the cache and free values. (add them together and that's basically how much available memory you have). I was looking to see if it was a number less than 100. The total will look a bit off because it doesn't count the memory the kernel has reserved for itself. Glad I could be helpful, and Happy asterisking!
