Call to lnusertemp failed


Hello All,
I installed my Reliance Netconnect+ data card on my openSUSE 11.3.
No problems, installation was successful. Able to access the internet, though I had to login as root from terminal and run wvdial. However I presumed that accessing the internet from root could get messy and decided to switch to root user and add permissions to the required files so that internet access to specific users on the system can be provided including the default root.
But when I try to switch to root user, I get the message "call to lnusertemp failed (Temporary directories full??) Check your installation".
My question is, can this problem be resolved by deleting all files from /root/tmp OR is there any other solution to this problem.

Please help

The first thing I recommend is check and see if your tmp directories are really full.
Try:
Code:
 df -kh
and see what shows up for /tmp

If /tmp is NOT full then I would check the permissions of tmp or /root/tmp as they will likely have to be modified (using chmod or chown) to allow other users to access them. Also, the error you're getting is this error printed at the command line or in a log? If its the command line I'd look around for a log and see if you can get some more details there.

Hello,
I am getting this message in a dialog box and when I click on OK, it redirects me to the switch user login page.
