Unhappy F10 Upgrade GUI not working

I just upgraded from Fedors 6 to Fedora 10. Everything seemed fine.
Before logging in I have an error in the boot log:
mcstransd:error while loading shared libraries:
can't open shared object file: no such file or directory

On the desktop there are 2 blank error dialog boxes and no user icons.
Clock comes up but then disappears.
Menus and menu bars do not work.
Only think that works is the desktop icon.

ctrl alt backspace
can't login as root
ctrl alt f5 - can login as root or normal user. User files seem intact.

Any help much appreciated.

Looks like you're missing the libcap1 package. You might want to install that.
