Thanks for your response. However, I am unable to move ahead yet.
This is what is happening with me:
When I turn on the power, and press CTRL + ALT + F2, it stops and asks to select OS (to boot). Only Fedora is listed there. Other options shown below are 'C' for command promt, etc. So I use C to go to command prompt.
There, on pressing tab, I can see a list of commands; which includes root, rootnoverify, boot, reboot, find, verbose, debug, help, hide, etc.
When I type root, it says Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x8e. ls, chmod, chown nothing works.
I tried to find the file - find . -name /var/lib/gdm.ICEauthority or find /var/lib/gdm.ICEauthority, it cannot find the file.
As many of you, I spent a lot of time in forums, google, changing permissions, etc...finally I figured it out by myself...First, I checked the user:group properties of the directory gdm, and they were root:root, however, everything inside directory gdm was gdm:gdm....so common sense indicated to me to change the properties of directory gdm to gdm:gdm and it worked...Thats all, hope it work for you!
