GNOME stopped working!


Hi, for some reason I am not able to login to my Linux box with GNOME any more with any accounts (SSH via Putty is fine however).

Following is what's recorded in the .xsession-erros file.
Code:
[root@test ~]# cat .xsession-errors
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/sessreg -a -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "root"
localuser:root being added to access control list
No profile for user 'root' found
gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've tried changing it to runlevel 3 and starting X manually but saw a bunch of stdout not knowing what it means.
Code:
[root@test ~]# runlevel
N 5
[root@test ~]# init 3
[root@test ~]# runlevel
5 3
[root@test ~]# startx
xauth:  creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.3771

Your system is missing a JPEG-library, install that and try if it is working now.
It would also help to know which distribution in which version you are using, also graphics hardware and drivers.

The library is there. Not sure why it says not found.

So when you login do you directly enter runlevel 3 or you get the logon screen as you said you are unable to login

do you get any graphical error on screen when you enter username and password?


you can update the gnome package be reinstalling the missing package as the error says

Code:
#rpm -ivh libjpeg.so.62
or get the relative package from internet

or

Code:
#yum -y install libjpeg.so.62

I get a graphical login screen, and am able to enter my credentials. However as soon as I hit the login button (or whatever it's called), I was given the same error message I pasted above on a dialog box.

You mentioned re-installing gnome but the commands appear to be for installing the jpeg library, which is already available on the system. Can you elaborate a bit more on this?
