Hey everyone, I have searched this forum and to my knowledge this hasn't posted here before, if it has please point me to the solution.
I just downloaded and installed Fedora Core 2 on my PC, then I used the RedHat Network's Up2date software to download all the updates (including the kernel update) and install them. After the download and the installation finished it told me everything was installed successfully, so I closed the Window and restarted my system. The new Kernel appeared in my boot menu, I selected it and hit enter. The boot process went fine, just like with the old kernel (if not faster), but when I logged in, all the icons had lost their customized Redhat/Fedora style icons and reverted to their default icons, and also the wallpaper was gone (black desktop instead). I opened the start menu and all the icons from there were gone too... tried launching some applications such as Mozilla etc... it gave me an error saying the link was broken.
Frustrated, I restarted the system, this time choosing the old kernel image, again the system booted fine, but when I logged in the same problem was there.
What caused this and how can I fix it?
BTW... it was a fresh install of Fedora Core 2.
