Gnome desktop fails to start after login


Hi folks,

For unknow reason, Gnome desktop fails to start after login, only the
mouse pointer hanging. Switching to runlevel 3 with [Ctrl]+[Alt]+F4
functions


Looked at /etc/X11/xorg.conf and found;

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Genteric Monitor"
Options "DPMS"
HosizSync 28-64

Not indicating the running monitor "Philips 190B"


Section "Screen"
SubSection 1
Depth 1
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" etc
EndSubSection

etc.

SubSection 16
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" etc.
EndSubSection
SubSection 24
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" etc.
EndSubSection


Removed all SubSections leaving only SubSection 16 and 24. Also
removed all resolution only retaining "1280x1024" "1024x768"

But problem still remains, x-window failed to start.

Please advise. TIA


B.R.
