anyone had this experience?
upon launching gnome-terminal, the popup shows, then that it, it wont drop to a shell.
i tried to remove gnome-terminal package, and reinstall it back again from CD. its the same.
i tried loggin in as root, existing non-root and a new non-root account, but its still the same.
additionally, xterm won't launch. i yum updated it, it wont launch still.
i tried booting from older kernel, both xterm and gnome-terminal doesnt work anymore.
i tried Ctrl+Alt+F1, yes i can login as root and non root accounts, so i guess gnome-terminal and xterm doesnt work even using a new profile or old one.
no idead what was the cause of it. i need to be dropped from shell using these softwares from runlevel 5.
attached is a screen shot.
