I have just restructured my system (repartitioned the main disk to

Your session only hasted less than 10 seconds.  If you have not logged
out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem
or you may be out of disk space.  Try logging in with one of the
failsafe sessoions to see if you can fix this problem.

I can log in via ssh or as root, but I don't know what to fix.  Since
I can log in via ssh, I am assuming that I have enough disk space
(there's plenty everywhere), so I'm thinking a config problem, but

This has happened to me more than once (Fedora Core) but I can't remember
the cause for sure. It may have been a UID problem or it may have b een a
permissions problem on ~/.dmrc. .dmrc should be -rw------- I tend to forget
numbers when I don't use them for a while.
Would that be chmod 600 /home/username/.dmrc?
Just a guess. Like I said, it's happened to me but it's been a while and I don't
recall for sure.

Also could be permissions on /tmp. It is owned by root butt should also be
writable by you for desktop. This could give you then disk space problem since (or if) you are unable to write to it. I also forget this one but it either needs SUID
or "sticky" bit? Should be drwxrwxrwt
