    Gnome config manager doesn't start


    Hi everyone,

    I foolishly upgraded some dbus packages yesterday. Now when I log into a gnome session, it will not load the gnome configuration manager.

    From what I understand, RPM no longer supports the rollbacks. Is there another way I can undo this? The problem with erasing the RPM and installing a previous version is that I do not know what the previous version was. I tried scanning some of the YaST2 logs, but nothing looked right. I reinstalled the previous versions of the packages listed below (they were the ones updated yesterday). That did not help. Does RPM keep a log of what was installed on your system?

    The problem with "rpm -qa --last" is that it is only the current packages installed, and I want a historical log. I can set up a cron job to do this, but I was hoping RPM or another utility would have already been developed.

    Your comments, thoughts, and ideas are welcome and appreciated!

    Kind regards,
    WT

    I don't use rpm distros, but there should be a log file somewhere. Check /var/log/rpmpkgs
