Unhappy GTK+ Related I *think* GNOME won't load, no graphical element to RedHat 9...


Hi,

Installed a few packages yesterday - pango and GTK+ both worked fine (according to the software). Installed GAIM and ran it. Everything was working fine.

However, after restarting I am faced with the problem no graphical frontend is able to load hence locking me at the black screen with the x cursor. I can access the shell with Alt + F4.

After a brief period the screen changes to a blue screen (similar to the Windows blue screen of death) and says:

^_z

Yes No

Obviously, this is somewhat concerning for me! Not even sure where to start in an attempt to repair it?

Thanks in advance,
James

gmm.. slightly odd... what desktop manager were you using? i wouldn't instantly assume it was gtk.. what else made you think that? have you tried using an alternative, non-gtk+ reliant desktop, e.g. fluxbox? are there any more specific errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
