Gnome doesn´t start with Sarge r3
I had one Debian Sarge (3.1) r2 installed on a Compaq Deskpro EP
configured for the desktop environment. I re-installed the Debian
Sarge using r3 CD´s instead of the original r2 CD´s. Surprisingly, the
Gnome environment did not start when the installation was finished and the
I made another installation of the Sarge r2, and the Gnome
environment just started normally.
Again, I made other installation of the Sarge r3, and again, the
Gnome environment did not start.
I repeated this experience for more four times, alternating
the installation of r2 and r3, using the exactly same installation options for
both. The results were the
same. Gnome did not start with r3 although the desktop environment
task had always been selected during the installation
As this behaviour doesn´t make sense for me, for some days I´ve tried to
find something on the Internet, without success.
So, this is the problem.
