suse 9.1 log in just loops back.


Ok guys, I was seeing this a few weeks ago when I was playing with suse 9.1

when I shut it down or re-boot when it comes back up I have to log back in. No biggie. I just put in my log in name and password. I hit enter.

the screen goes black for about 2 seconds and then I'm right back at my log in again.

I can log in as root and delete my account and re-create the account but it will happen again...

Anybody ever see this before? and the real big question... how do I fix this so it won't happen again.

I just did a network install on this computer. after fdisking and re-formatting...
all I have on here is suse 9.1

thanks.

Doug

login failed

That's what I see when I do the cntrl - alt- Fi

well I do see a bunch of crap there before I try to log in about run level 5 has been reached

Skipped services in run level 5: smbfs

whatever that is...


then I see linux login and I put in my username
but when I try to put in my password. and I get the wrong password.

so lets try goin in as root and changing the password.

damn, same thing.

ok here goes. my username was dgent!5 and a password of DISJKT!

so I went it as root and changed my username and password to an old one I KNOW worked.. no issues with caps and special char's.

I still can't log in.

I DO know I can go in as root and delete that account and re-create it.. and be able to log in again.

BUT, here's the kicker. It'll screw up again .... I've never had this happen before I installed suse 9.1.

I was so pissed at it before I removed 9.1 and re-installed 9.0 and low and behold....... it started to do it with 9.0. HMMMmmmmmmmmm

HMMmmmm, Interesting!

I went in as root again. and created a new user. and password.

I logged out as root and in as the new user. logged out of the new user and back in just fine...... I then ran ymessenger from the run command and set it up..... I sent a message and logged out.... I then tried to log in again... wouldn't let me...

SOoooooo, I logged in as root again and created an account for my wife...
I could log in as her with no problems what so ever. I could log out and back in... BUT as soon as I ran ymessenger and set it up, when I logged out and back in. it killed it and won't let me log in to my account again.

I went to yahoo.com and downloaded the redhat 9 rpm version and ran it on here.

I think that's what the problem is.... Reason being, I would get this same issue on suse 9.0 when I ran it on there.... So it looks to me like suse and yahoo messenger are not playing to happily!

what do you think?

thanks for the help.
