log on and lots of other problems


Hi
Everytime I log on I have to choose a session (e.g.KDE). If I just log on normally (last session) there appear some windows with red signs in it on the screen and I can't do anything.
Also, some of my files in /usr/lib have disappeared.
And openoffice doesn't work anymore and if I try to install it again it looks very strange, text much wider than usual, windows not fitting on screen, it can't put any files into /home/openoffice/share.
Also the .bashrc has disappeared.
Does anyone now what this could mean??? All this happened after I deleted some of my own files from my home directory.
I have Red Hat 8.0

please use a more useful thread title next time, it should give a very brief iade of what your post is about, not just blindly ask for help, thanks.

Are you saving your last session when logging off? What happens if you don't select last session or any other Window Manager, etc? Can you ellaborate a bit more.

Not much help if we don't know what files they are.

How are you reinstalling? Did you try to remove all the existing files and configurations before reinstalling.

This is probably something to do with your next question.

How or what did you delete from your home directory? More details please or were as clueless as you are.
