gnome broke :( but kde ok :)


~ fedora core 1 ( i tried FC2 but i went back to FC1 quick!)

~ gnome doesn't work but kde does (it used to work fine).

everythink was working fine and then, i went to boot and dang!! it wont boot with gnome anymore. it puts me back to the fedora login screen but before that, it shows me the file .xsession-errors

in the file .xsession-errors i have:


/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w /var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0" "root"

(gnome-session:9426): Gnome-CRITICAL **: file gnome-program.c: line 762 (gnome_program_get_app_version): assertion `program->_priv->state >= APP_PREINIT_DONE' failed

(gnome_segv2:9426): Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkdisplay-x11.c: line 418 (gdk_display_pointer_ungrab): assertion `GDK_IS_DISPLAY (display)' failed

(gnome_segv2:9426): Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkdisplay-x11.c: line 462 (gdk_display_keyboard_ungrab): assertion `GDK_IS_DISPLAY (display)' failed


any clues ?
