Hello Everyone,

I'm facing this really annoying problem after updating my SLES SP1 to SP2
Apparently everything went well when I did the update but now X (or gnome, I don't know for sure where the problem is) don't start and after boot process I only get the good old shell-mode

I've tried many things but nothing seems to work so decided to ask here

When the OS is finishing the loading I receive this messages


Starting service gdmstartproc: signal catched /usr/sbin/gdm: Segmentation Fault
Master Resource Control: Runlevel 5 has been reached
Failed Services in runlevel 5: esp mcelog xdm
Skipped services in runlevel 5: nfs


When i try to use startx (as root) i get this

Then I tried to run sax2 to reconfigure but I just get this:


SaX: your current configuration will not be read in

SaX: no graphics card(s) found at /usr/share/sax/init.pl line 157.

xrandr returns just this


Can't open display


I tried to comment the "Load "freetype"" line in xorg.conf but that did nothing (just the line talking about this error disappeared when I tried to run startx again)

my videocard is a Matrox mga 200
(From xorg.conf)

If any information is missing just tell me.
I've digged a lot and nothing seems to work...I'm thinking about installing KDE but I fear that it could just make things worse...

Sorry for long post (I tried to make it as organized as possible) and really thanks for your time guys

Don't know if it's related but I had difficulties with the same graphics card under ubuntu, had to switch driver from mga to vesa in xorg.conf to make it work.

There are some missing symbols in at least two libraries that prevent gdm from starting:

/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gnome-settings-daemon: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/gio/modules/libdconfsettings.so: undefined symbol: g_settings_backend_get_type
gnome-volume-control-applet: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libpango-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_malloc_n

Please check if there are some pending updates on which these libraries rely. Some packages may be still on SP1 level.

I don't know why SaX2 fails, but actually X might start properly. Just gdm fails to start.

So, what should I do with this missing symbols?
