I get no GUI after online Update


I executed an online update and when I restarted the system I didn't see the useual welcome screen with the various options of sesion selection. Instead of the usual stuff I had only the xconsole option where I can open only an xterm to work with.

I have inserted the Installation DVD and performed a system recovery but still I don't get any solution to the problem.

What coused this problem? Can I recover my system without loosing my files?

Thanks in advance,
Theo

when I try to execute startx I get the following:

Fatal Server error:
Server is already active for display 0
if this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.x0-lock
and start again

Pleaseconsult The X.Org Foundation Support at http://wiki.X.Org for help.

xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 by server
xinit: unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (error 3): Server error.

Couldn't get a file descriptor reffering to the console
