GNOME Display Manager fails to load during startup
I have installed Ubuntu recently (loving it) and have experienced almost no problems (for a newbie).
Last night I decided to get myself some software. My machine not on the internet, I couldn't try out the apt-get stuff I read about but instead used the source. I tried to install Xine-lib (did not install for X11 or something like that), xine-ui (said it couldn't find xine-lib), RealPlayer (worked).
After another try of xine-lib, my gnome-session started to not respond. I tried a logout and login, but as soon as I logged out I was stuck. A reboot did not do anything else.
It now starts up into a text logon - prior to that, it show that gdm doesn't load.
I have tried 'startx' in commandline but that only gives me an error (no such file or directory).
Thanks in advance,
[EDIT] The xine website told me to fiddle around with the ld.so.conf file in /etc. I did that but have now changed it back using terminal.
