{FC4] can't login as user with X anymore after nvidia installation


Hi!
I've just installed the Nvidia drivers.
Just after editing the X config file, i can not login as a normal user with X anymore.
Terminal Console works fine, but when i try to login with X it says that GDM could not log me in, and either my HDD space is full or i don't have enough rights on my home directory.
The only thing that works, is the root account, wich i am using now.

Please help, and thanks in advance.

P.S.: Please people, this is kinda urgend!

I just deactivated SELinus in the GRUB boot parameters. I read on some sites, that SELinux can cause some problems with the Nvidia drivers, but it was no use, i still cant login as a standart user with X

OOOKAY!! I managed to fix it!

And the answer to all that anger was:

too few space! (just what the errormessage said btw.)

Now i need to find out what filled that space so quickly, i read od other sites, that on a power loss/uncotroled reboot during boot large ammounts of logfiles can be thrown all over the place, and sometimes, this causes a porgram to constantly produce those files.
