    I am a new user of scientific linux 6 . I am working on a project started by others and Unfortunatly , the GUI stopped working. I need to find out how to trouble shoot the GUI to solve the problem . What I have now When I open my PC is a complete black terminal . I need to go back to the GUI and start troubleshooting. Can somebody advice me how to start ?

    I Did

    yum update.
    Xorg -configure : gives the error ( Missing output drivers. Configuration failed )

    I tried also

    xinit : it gives errors ( no screens found )
    lspci اgrep VGA

    ( 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Xeon E3 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics controller ( rev 06)

    ls /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    ( ls : cannot access /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers : No such file or directory )

    nano /etc/
    [ opens an empty file ]

    Any ideas how to get the gui to work again ? Thanks :)
