I had a confilct with hwdata and yumex removed it and all it's dependencies....by mistake.

No more GUI, no nore bash shelll. But it didn't destroy all my configuration info for networking webserver etc...and I'm hompeful I can get things back to normal with some help...

What I did to try and fix it was was upgraded to FC5(from FC4) but now I can't start my GUI

startx says "bash: command not found"

system-config-display lets me change setting but on exit there's an error message that says. Windows Manager warning: failed to read from file /usr/share/themes...metacity.xml

I checked and there is no directory "themes" it must have been deleted by my yumex mistake.

How can I get the Windows Manager Bback?  What do I need to install/config?

A final message I got says,
Windows Manager warning:  Lost Connection to Display: ':17.0":
most likely the xserver was shut down or you lled/destroyed the windows manager.

Can someone tell me the best way to restore my windows manager/GUI?


Can you boot to runlevel 3 and log in? If so, do that and see if you can install the tools you need.
