Not Able To Login To Gnome session In Cent OS 5 after yum update


Dear All,

I am stuck up in a strange problem.I was running Centos 5.0 on a Lenovo PC. This was working perfectly fine.

To update to CentOS 5.2 I ran "yum update". This ran successfully and I rebooted after completion of the same.

Upon next reboot I was not able to log in to my routine Gnome session. All I got was a graphical screen running xterm. On going further I found that the "entry" for GNOME session is missing after running Yum.

Can some one suggest what could be the problem and how to set it right ?



Thanking In Advance

So if you run the following command:

rpm -qa | grep session

do you get a line like this:

gnome-session-2.16.0-6.el5.centos


If not then you need to install gnome-session, for example run the following command:

yum install gnome-session

Let me know if you have any questions?

Dear Fordeck,

Thanks for your help ! I installed gnome-session rpm and got the desktop running again.

But again there is a small problem. Once I got the desktop I was prompted with a message that there was a problem loading <filename>. Do you want to delete it ?

After this the volume control icon ( small speaker icon) has vanished from the taskbar.The speakers are working fine -sound card is working okay- only thing is icon is missing.

Is there any way we can get it again ?



Thanks

does it says "filename" or the actual file name?

right click on an empty spot in gnome panel select "add to panel..." it'll bring you a list of so called applets, select volume control, and click on add. then you can move it to it's final location by right clicking the icon and select move.

You might need to check and see if 'gnome-applets' needs to be installed. I've seen this happen before after an update. For example run the following command:

rpm -qa | grep applet

The output from this command should contain a line similar to the following:

gnome-applets-2.16.0.1-19.el5

If not then you need to install using the following command:

yum install gnome-applets

Let me know if this helped or post any questions you might have.

Regards,

Fordeck
