RE: Gnome login restarts gnome the first time I login.

Dear Malcolm,

 I have downloaded the following RPM package from the :


 for the Red hat 6.2.

 I have installed it using the -U (upgrade) flag and seems to have been
upgraded well.

 But when I try the following:

 rpm --rebuild gdm-

 Then I got the following error:

 aclocal: 7 : macro 'AM_PROG_XML_I' not found in library
 Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.60622 (%build)

 What is happening? I am really lost with all this.

 Many thanks for your patience and your time.
