gdm crash and missing panel on Xubuntu 6.06
I recently installed Xubuntu 6.06. It was running fine on an old compaq. 64MB RAM. 733Mhz intel cpu. After the install everything was working great. I fired up synaptic to make sure all the packages were up to date. I upgraded any that weren't. Looking back on the history it looks like gdm was upgraded along with the kernel and some other things. The next time I booted up the computer a message came up that said "The greeter application appears to be crashing. Attempting to use a different one..." Another greeter comesup in X, but it is a plain greeter rather than a themed one. After logging in, there is no panel. I can still run applications by right-clicking on the desktop.
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
