Nautilus not started on Fedora



What Fedora version are you using? In the latest fedora 15 I believe it is no longer reproducible. I think they have fixed it during fedora 11 or 12. You must have an old version. Anyway, if you don't want to upgrade then try to remove all gnome directories and the .nautilus directory, then log out and log in again. After it reinstall gnome desktop package using this command : yum reinstall gnome-desktop. You must log in as root when running that command. Since your gui is not working, switch your screen to terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F2 in your keyboard.
