I blew up Nautilus

And I don't know how. I'm doing some programming here and when I tried to compile my code (it worked fine like two seconds before) the computer just froze. No warnings or anything, just a nasty freeze. No keys were responding.

Eventually I decided to reset (yes, hit the reset button as Ctrl-Alt-Del wasn't working). I got the error on startup to check the file system (not sure exactly what I was, but you had to press Y within a few seconds to force the file check ... which I did). Anyway, things *seem* to have started properly (well the programs I've run so far are working) except Nautilus (the file manager thingie - like when you click the Red Hat (yes, I'm running Red Hat 9) and then Home Folder).

It simply doesn't start. Nothing seems to happen. I tried typing nautilus at the command line and nothing as well (not even an error message).

Any suggestions guys?

You could try reinstalling the rpm.

Doesn't sound like a Nautilus problem to me - check your compilers for integrity
