Trouble with login with X in Fedora Core


Hi everyone,

I am a newbie to this forum as well as to Linux I am currently facinga problem with graphical login screen with my Fedora Core 1 distribution. Prior to the occuring of the problem, I have updated the systems (i might think this is the bloody reason )

I used to login the graphical screen before but now it change to CLI (text mode) and a line saying that " INIT: id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes ". Then I went Enter. It asked me to put the login name and password (but in text mode ). It then came up with the command line like wen we run the Terminal in the graphical screen. When I tried to used the command startx, a series of error showin up:

xauth:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xauth:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xauth:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xauth:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xinit:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xauth:error while loading shared libraries: libXmuu.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



and when i pressed Ctrl+Alt+F7 to get back to the graphical login screen and receive the same error line like before INIT: id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.

And more thing (sorry for askin toomuch ), whenever i update the new kernel saying 2.4.22-1.2115 to 2.4.22-1.2188 and lastly to 2.4.22-1.2194, it showed one more option of the new kernel to the GRUB Login page. I wonder how to get the update overwrite the old version. (I have thought of reconfiguring the grub-conf file but wonder whether its better or not...hehe). Could anyone help me out with that.

Appreciate for ur help

I had the same problem before and searched around for a long time before giving in and doing a fresh install. However, I did read some posts where people did get it working doing some things. Look around and if you can't find a solution, reinstall the OS.

Now, the cause of the problem: You probably launched up2date and it started to download the packages but then a message came up saying "GPG Signature is false, package is corrupted. Continue?"

This happened to me and I clicked yes...big mistake, I never did it again and didn't have the problem again. I came up with a solution to the problem of those error messages that I posted at:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=197368

up2date has worked fine for me ever since I did this.

As for the kernel thing, you have to uninstall your old kernels. Boot into your new kernel and make sure everything is working the way you want it too (you just need to make sure it's fine before you erase the old one).

Next, use the command <rpm -q kernel> to find the kernels that you have installed on your system. Now use <rpm -ev name-of-kernel-you-want-to-remove-here.rpm> to completely erase if from your system. I'm not sure if you need the .rpm at the end or not.

That should take the kernel out and erase it from grub as well. Hope all this helped, and if you have more questions, ask away.
