gnome-power-manager error
 
I was receiving a gnome-power-manger error after the password was entered. Just a blank screen. I found how to log in doing an Alt-F2, brings me to a text login.

Is there a way to bring back the gui interface?

Thanks!!!

Hi:

Try startx if that doesn't work try the first 3 on this page-
In the past startx worked for me:-

Do you remember or can you post the gnome-power-manger error?

Tried the startx gave me a lots of errors:

Starts:

End of message.

The cat of the Xorg.0.log is the same as above.

I did a ps -ef | grep XSERV and nothing came up.

Thanks for your help

I could be wrong but it seems as if the server is crashing-

It could be that some files are corrupt or even missing.
This is out of my reach as I am not on a server and I don't know how to repair a socket error. Sorry-
I'll ask a Moderator to join in.:)

I found this:

You can remove those sockets and locks if their session (or owner) is no longer present, normally they have a valid user, deleted users might have leftovers (ls -l will show a uid instead of a name)

Aside from that; I learned from a man running Open Suse that it too comes with Xorg which is not supported by the legacy driver. IF it's a driver issue to get the 3D acceleration to work you have to recompile the kernel and reinstall kernal pkgs and that may help-

startx fails because there is already a X server running (displaying a black screen, if I understand the OP correctly).
What is the exact error-message you get from gnome-power-manager?

mwlaursen@aol.com 01-07-2014 09:08 PM

This is the error that comes up in a dialog box when the system first boots.

Install problem!

The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly.
Please contact your computer administrator.

I am the computer admin and don't know how to solve this problem. lol.


Thanks for your help!!

What distribution are you running?

From what I have read online in several Linux forums a lot of folks are having this issue after a system upgrade:-

When the Gnome Display Manager appears again try Ctrl+Alt+F1 which will switch you to a text based login prompt.
Login in using an account with username and password.

Try cleaning your apt-get cache: (providing your using a distro that uses APT for it's cmdline utility)
Code:

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean

That will free up the space used by package archives which are in /var/cache/apt/archives

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot again.
That should help-

I am running Redhat 6.5.

Tried the apt-get, that is not on my machine.

TobiSGD 01-08-2014 05:36 PM

At this point it may be the best to just ask the Red Hat support.

The number is 1-888-REDHAT-1 (or) 1-919-754-3700--
