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

I performed the following:

[root@hx5 ~]# ps -ef | grep gnome

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.

to do the init, switch to another terminal by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2
Sign in as root, then type:

#init 3

After it runs through (stopping X), you can restart X by typing:

#init 5

To restart the network service, from the terminal, type

#service network restart

or

#service networking restart

depending on your distribution.
