I have an RH 7.0 setup which was working fine until yesterday. Then I started a process that filled up my root partition. I was
able to remove the rogue file and worked along OK until logout a the end of the work day. This morning at boot time I got the usual
friendly RedHat GUI login prompt. When I attempted to login, the screnn went through its usual flicker and then I got the GUI login
again. The same thing happened as root or user.
I started up in single-user mode and cleaned out my .gnome* directories and tried again--same thing.
I've done the Xconfiguratoe thing again, used .xinitrc with exec gnome-session, and nothing has worked.
Apparently something in /tmp got trashed at disk-full time and now my configuration is hosed.
Any ideas for recovery would be greatly appreciated.
