gnome-shell won't start

Hey,

my system hanged while it was downloading/installing some updates, had to restart it.
Now after logging in, GNOME shell won't start anymore.
Tried to start from console with: gnome-shell, but it gives the following error:

gnome-shell: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libnm-util.so.2: file too short

Re: gnome-shell won't start

Did you run "yum-complete-transaction"? Do that first if there was an interrupted install, then "yum update" again.

If you still get this error, try "yum what-provides libnm-util.so.2" and reinstall that package, although in that case there may be several broken packages that need fixing.

Hey Gareth, thanks for the help, "yum-complete-transaction" produced message that there are no transactions, however "yum update" installed the rest of updates and GNOME shell started after reboot. Had a hard time setting wireless connection over command line, but after some time I managed to connect to the network. :-)

Thanks again.
