Linux, XMing, and gnome question

My gnome session frooze up, so I killed my XMing and putty sessions and started again

I start a new XMing, and in a new Putty session, I enter:

[root@hx5 ~]# export DISPLAY=10.14.100.2:0.0
[root@hx5 ~]# gnome-session
SESSION_MANAGER=local/hx5.rtp.raleigh.ibm.com:/tmp/.ICE-unix/12030

If it is a fedora / redhat based system, you should be able to use and init 3 and init 5 to change run level down to 3 and back to 5 to restart X.  With ubuntu style systems I think that you restart the gdm service.

try Stopping NetworkManager service and use also chkconfig networkManager off to be persistent
