Does anyone know how to restart it somehow.
Is there a way to kill processes in virtual console 7 (ALT+CTRL+F7) from virtual console 1 (ALT+CTRL+F1), so that if netscape crashed for example, and I was unable to do anything in the XServer I could kill it from there.
To answer your first question, run ps -A in a terminal and find the PID for gnome-panel, then kill it. It will re-start on it's own. As for the second question, you can do the same thing. Do a ps -A, find the process you are having a problem with and kill it. I may be totally wrong here, but it is my understanding the processes are the same no matter what virtual terminal you are in.
