During login I get this message :
"GDM could not write to your authorization file.this could mean that
you are out of disk space
or that your home directory could not be opend for writing.In any case
it is not possible to log in...."
I have plenty of free disk space ..
I have root access and I can login to root without any problem ..
unfortunately I dont know how to
fix this problem .. Please help me.
aim running redhat desktop
So what, you just can't login as your normal user?
If so, you can login as root and create another user and login as that user as a quick fix.
Another question is, whether your /home is not situated on a different partition where the disk space is running out?
Too little information to make conclusions.
Login as root, open terminal and run `df -h` in order to see what partitions are mounted and how much space left on each.
In case it is just some misconfiguration with your user's home directory, then creating a new user will fix it.
BTW, which version of "redhat desktop" are you running there?
this is the original message i get after logging to red hat enterprise 4.5.
if i try to login
GDM could not write your authorization file. This mean that you are out of disk Space or that your home directory could not be opened for writing .In this case, it is not possible to log In .
Please contact your system administrator.
