Red Hat EL3 X GUI crashed
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
I log in as root today, and found the desktop is black, all menus/dialogues showing only "-" or ">". Wherever I click or right click, a dialogue pops up with a red stop sign, trying to tell me something, but I can't see any text. I can't even log out because I don't know which area of the screen to click, and besides, the red stop sign dialog always pop up. I can't reset the machine right now because it's our server,and users are accessing network shares on this machine right now. I will have a chance during the weekend or late night to reset it, but how do I recover from this error?
