Okay.. this is incredibly frustrating.
First off, I am using Fedora 11.
Is there a way to view recently added yum packages? I dont remember exactly what package I installed, but I do remember it was something for OpenGL or possibly for my specific video card. I am running a Compaq Presario laptop: CQ50-139WM. Cheap, wal-mart special. BUT it has a 2Ghz Celeron, 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM and is a 32-bit system. I'm almost certain that it has an Nvidia card, but I could have misread information.
Anyhoo... I loaded a dock (Cairo-Dock) and I loved it. I lost the taskbar on the bottom of the screen and found a skin I liked. Under preferences, I set "Remember Programs open on shutdown"... or something of the sort.
Well, cairo didnt load up on reboot... so I edited the start-up programs under preferences and added
It loaded, but there was a terminal window that stayed up the whole time. After forcing the opengl, I tried doing the 3D cube desktop changing thing and it totally didnt do anything at all (maybe i wasnt hitting the right keys) So I added some yum package that had something to do with nvidia (because thats what I think i have) and OpenGL. I deleted the option to force openGL so it would just say to run the command
Well, on start up, the Gnome desktop wont load. After hitting a few keys, I am sent to a login command prompt. After logging in, I am kept in the command prompt and tried entering a few other commands that I searched and found to hopefully force gnome to load
echo "exec gnome-session"> ~/.xinitrc
Then it says, "Cannot display".
Back to my original question, Is there a way for me to find the most recent installed Yum Packages so I can delete the newest one?
Is there a way I can edit the programs that are loaded on start up from the bash (Thats the command prompt, right?)
Preferably both because I'm still not sure which is my problem.
Thanks for any help in advance. I really wanna get off this windows machine.
