Re: Cannot login to gnome after RH7 upgrade

You may want to try resetting session management.  After typing in
password, BEFORE enter/login, press and hold control and shift, while
clicking login/enter.  You'll get a dialog box with two options, start
default programs, reset all user settings.  Try them in that order.
