actually the problem is that due to power failure i got my PC crashed while running on PCQ linux 7.1 ... ...but i when i reboot after power came then i could not log in ...

but i can log in into the command mode but there is some problem with the Gnome Desktop loading as when i try to log in from command screen then i use to get a blank screen for a while then the same log in screen appears ...

What exactly happens when you try to start the gui? Does the machine automatically attempt to load the gui using xdm or the like? If you can get to the command line, you should check your logfiles for errors, perhaps something in /var/log/messages? or /var/log/XFree86.*.log?

Chances are the system still thinks the connector (or adapter) is in use, perhaps due to a lockfile or the ilk.

Do you see something that resembles .DCOPServer <something something>:<something>?

Perform an ls -la on your home dir, and copy in the dot files -- the .whatever files.

My best guess at the moment, without any additional information is, that you should delete the .DCOP files if they exist in the cli, and then try again.

Barring new information from the logs, that is.
