Re: GNOME won't start with startx

First off, thanks for the replies! I've been going nuts over this, and it's great to know that there are people out there whoi are willing to help :) OK, so last night I gutted my systemm and started over with testing, as reccommended (and I think I fixed the wrapping issue too :). I'm back to testing now, and everything is working fine, except that startx still won't launch GNOME (even after adding 'gnome-session' to my ~/.session file). This confuses me, as I thought I had purged most of the relevant configs. Did GNOME 2 mess with something in nasty ways?
