I have Red Hat 8.

The graphic interface does not load completly, it shows the mouse cursor clock and you can move it, but the rest of the interface does not finish to load.

All the services work fine, except the Graphic service offcourse

how can I fix this problem without reinstall the OS???

Please help me!!!

how long have you given it?

Try to reconfigure the XFree86. (redhat-config-xfree86)
or
xf86config

Choose the right mouse, monitor, etc and you should be able to get it up and running.

If you give it time and it dies it should give you a reason (error code). That would be helpful to determine what's going on with your machine.

there is lot of chance to fial the xwindow system

1, if there is not enough space in "/" partition
2, display rosolution error
3, missing of Window maager..
4, or it may be TWM

if u can see only mouse cursor i think thats in TVM
TVM is a one of the window manager in linux... if then u have to change to GNOME or KDE
or u can use it... by right click  u will get a menu and select X-term u can run all programs form there just run command

if u want to change the window manager u can do it with "switchdesk" command

eg:- switchdesk gnome
        switchdesk kde

so on..

---------------------------
if the problem is xwindows

u have to run redhat-config-xfree86

and configer the proper color depth and rosolution

try the appropriate way

regards

robinboby.
