Gnome sound lockup -- can't log into X!
Hi everyone--I managed to do a real bone-headed thing. I configured Gnome to play a startup sound, but my sound is (apparently) not set up properly for Gnome.
Does anyone know how to un-configure the sound in Gnome so I can log into X again?? Then I'll look into the more general sound problem later. For now I jsut want my X back!
I can sound with GAIM, play MP3's with XMMS, get some (choppy) movies played on MPlayer, etc. but Gnome locks up. I log in and it shows the background but stops responding. CTRL-ALT-BKSP will log me out to the login screen again no problem, and I can get login with Telnet no problem (or CTRL-ALT-F1), but I'm not sure where to look in the dozens of files that Gnome has in the .gnome* directory.
I'm using RedHat 8. I haven't upgraded Gnome / X past that level. I *have* been messing with my sound though....
