X server not running after install/deinstall VMware-tools



Hi,

 

I've installed RHEL 4.7 on a ESX VMware machine.

 

[root rbndtcgxwo601 /]# cat /etc/redhat-release

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)

 

 It worked quite nice until I installed the VMware tools.

So I uninstalled the VMware tools, but stil I can't get my Xserver
running. The screen is flipping between the Cross and a screen full of
vertical barrs and sometimes there is the blue ring (consisted out of
balls) rotating. But still there is no X screen.

Now I thought to reinstall the X software (is it xorg??)

How can I do this with rpm or with up2date?

I couldn't get is to force install over the same X software.!!!

 

# rpm -qa | grep xorg
