In your home directory, have a look at .gnome-errors. It might give you some
hints as to what's up. Otherwise, you can always create a .xsession file
in your home directory containing "exec /usr/bin/X11/xterm" or whatever. If
this doesn't work, your problem is most likely with X.
If it does work, try running "gnome-session" and see what happens.
