Hi there again!!!
Well, I fix one this, destroy another
. Yesterday I could not run any 3D applications, so I fixed it as Nvidia's manual said. Here is my thread:
I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem I'm facing today though.
When I try to login (text mode), I cannot login as any user (yes, it's right, whenever I type an user name, it returns me to the login prompt without any error messages), root is fine. When I then login as root and type su <user name> I change to user and I cannot startx, getting this error:
PAM Authentication Failed, cannot start X server
Perhaps you do not have console ownership? giving up.
- xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
- xinit: No such process (errno 3): server error.
If I switch to Graphical login, root can login, but any other user will crash the screen, bringing up an ugly blue screen with unreadable characters and options /yes/no.
I've tried to add a new user to see if it would fix. It did not...
I've tried google, this forum and some others, but although many have had this exactly same problem, nobody seems to be able fixing it. I'm backing up my stuff... I've the feeling a format is coming though
Any help would be great. I'm running RedHat 9.0, standard kernel/xfree86 and Nvidia's drivers (I've a Nvidia Geforce 4 MX 440)
Thanks in advance.
P.S: feel free to ask anyfile, I have no idea what PAM is and where to start lookin at it.
