Fedora 6 GUI not coming


I have Fedora 6 in a partition. Few days back in an effort to install SUSE in the other one resulted in my Fedora 6 is not loading through the GUI. It's directly coming to the login prompt saying it's a GDM crash. I can see my data and other folders there but the GUI is not coming. Please help to restore the GUI. I don't want another installation.

Have you tried issuing command:

telinit 5

To put you in graphical mode. If you have internet connection you can also see if it is not a big deal to un-install GDM and re-install it to see if that corrects it with commands:

yum remove gdm

yum install gdm

I just did a mock removal of gdm and yum only needed to remove that one package, doing this may re-configure what is messed up. Just a suggestion.

No it's not working. The error is "could not start X server due to an internal error, please contact .......".
Network is also not available.
