Question Redhat startup application crash


I have just installed Redhat 9.0 and got it working for a while.

Now when starting up (after having entered username and password) then it comes with following error.

"Application 'Nautilus' has crashed due to a fatal error"
"Application 'Gnome-panel' has crashed due to a fatal error"

How can I repair whatever is not working?

I would log in through console and run up2date gnome and see if the new rpms would solve the problem. If not, you may have to reinstall nautilus from the command line.

Did you also install KDE on your system or ano of the other Xwindows managers? If so, log in to KDE or Fluxbox and then reinstall nautilus from there.

your installation CDs will have all the rpms you need. have a look around.

to mount the CD type

mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

then type

cd /mnt/cdrom

then have a look around the rpm directory. When you find t'Nautilus' or gnome-panel type

rpm -Uvh --force gnome-panel-x-x-x.rpm

the --force option will refresh the package to its original state

Thanks guys

I tried to log in using KDE and that was not a problem.
Now I'm trying to install the two packages.
