CentOS 7 hangs on gui screen but allows login from putty

Hello all,

Last night my system was working properly, when i turned it on today , it is not showing me login screen on GUI mode,

But i can login from putty.

Note: I installed a bit torrent client “transmission”. Now i have removed it.

Please help…:disappointed:


First you need to try this command:

# startx

otherwise you will need to re install gnome-environment

# yum -y groupinstall "X Window System" 
# yum -y groupinstall "Desktop"
# yum -y groupinstall "General Purpose Desktop"

Thanks for reply…

Running yum update worked…

Strange things happened!

Did you seed something strange when uninstalling the ‘Transmission’ package?
Maybe it was uninstalled some part of Gnome too?

It can be the cause of your issue too.
