cannot run gnome after red carpet update


I recently downloaded red carpet and ran an update, the main purpose of which was to update gnome. After the update was complete i logged out of kde and attempted to load gnome with kdm but found it just loaded kde. I've tried loading gnome with the 'startx gnome' command but it still only loads kde.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks

Dan

I also just tried running red-carpet again, and have found it won't load.

kdm has a popup menu which lets you choose what GUI (or bash) to log into. You can edit this menu by logging in as root, starting the KDE control center, clicking on System Administration -> Login Manager -> sessions

I have mine set to kde, gnome, and bash.

I had already set this up, the problem was that even when i had chosen gnome in the kdm menu it was still loading kde. Thanks though.

I decided to make life easier by just reverting back to my old set-up by using yast2 and downgrading gnome. It's a relief to have everything working again but i still haven't been able to update gnome, i won't be trying red-carpet again as it obviously didn't install the correct rpms for my system, is there an alternative?

Thanks,

Dan

"is there an alternative? "

In SuSE 8.2 SuSE has upgraded Yast to where it acts like apt-get or red-carpet. I have not tried it yet. I am so used to installing rpms by hand that I am not particularly interested in automating the process.
