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?
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:
xauth: create new authoring file /root/.servrauth.22975
_XSERVTtransSocketUNIXCreatedListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Mas sure an X server isnt' already running
Please consult the Red Hat, Inc. Support
at https://www.redhat.com/apps/support/ for help
(EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information
Server terminated with error (1) Closing Log file.
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keygiving up.
xinit: Resource temporarily unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X Server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
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:
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?
This is the error that comes up in a dialog box when the system first boots.
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!!
This link might 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)
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.
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--
