Post Terminal not working in Fedora


Hello
Sir, I am working using vm-ware and had installed Fedora 12 as Linux Operating system. As I had started my Firefox it was showing some problems and then my terminal stops working.

I am not able to detect that why my terminal is not working properly. It is not starting at all.

I am not able to type any command in my command window.

Please do help

Ashwin Perti

well this is fedora - it is a testing and R&D distro

a crash in one program very often causes ALL of Xorg to crash.
sometimes you can still get to a term with " alt + ctrl +F3 " but not always .
most likely you will find that it is working after you reboot .
