unable to load GNOME or kde


i have a prob with red hat linux 7.2. My computer is supposed to get into GNOME automatically when linux starts. But it brings up a black screen.
I then tried using the linux prompt using ctrl-alt-F1. When I tried compiling a program, it said - cannot compile. no space on device.

I do not know how to free up space. I dont know if freeing up space would solve the problem.

Do the
df -h
What is the output?

If you don't have much space left. You will want to remove some files with the
rm file

For your GUI try typing
at a command-prompt
