You've not ever followed up on your other two threads, started over the past four years. As you were told before, RHEL 5.10 is a commercial, PAY FOR distribution...are you PAYING FOR IT??? And at this point, RHEL 5.10 is so old it is totally unsupported.

And what you've posted above has no context at all...are you saying your system won't boot? Does boot, but doesn't work?? GUI won't load? What???? The two things you posted aren't connected at all, and you haven't told us anything about what actual PROBLEM(S) you're having.

Hi...

Just as a suggestion, you might want to change your username using the instructions at the top of the page here, lest your email inbox ends up with a boatload of SPAM in the very near future. You can find the "Contact Us" form here.

Regards...
