I just finshed installing the ATI drivers and decided to see if X wound work as a normal user so i alt+f3ed to the terminal where i was logged in, typed startx and got a permission denied error. I tried rebooting howver when i login i get:
ender login: test
Last login: Sun Jan 18 19:30:17 +0000 2004 on tty2.
Cannot execute /bin/bash: Permission denied
I created the test account after i got his probelem to see if a new account would fix it but it obviously didn't =(
The permissions on /bin/bash seem fine:
bash-2.05b# ls -lh /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 614K Jun 24 2003 /bin/bash
I checked the /ec/groups file and i carn't see anything obviously wrong with it but i could have missed somthing. The drivers did do some stuff with groups im not sure if it modified anything important but it did ask if i wanted the opengl stuff accessable to all users, people in the users group, root only and a few others. Its also possible i toasted somthing without realising it or my filesystem became correpted etc... Root user can login fine ofcourse.
