RHEL display help please !!
I have RHEL 2.9-5. I was trying to install Cairo-1.8.10 on it. I was using the options --enable-xlib during configure. It complained of some missing xlib libraries.
So, I copied all the files under /usr/X11R6/lib from another linux PC that already had Cairo (same version). The cairo installation was then successful.
However, while I was copying the files, my screen suddenly went blank. There was just a blue background with a "X" for the mouse.
I can telnet to the machine and access files etc., but I cannot access the desktop and other GUI applications.
I am not very familiar with linux and I think I may have removed/changed some of the X11 files.
Can someone please help me as I need to use some GUI based applications (gnomint etc.). ?
thanks in advance.
