ICEauthority not update.
 
Greetings;

I have OpenSuse 11.3, with KDE4. a few days ago, after an upgrade, are presenting several flaws in the system configuration.

But I think the cause of all is that at startup, before showing up loginscreen display the message box

Quote:

Could not update ICEauthority file / var / lib / gdm / .ICEautority.
I gave CRTR Alt F1 to switch to text mode, and consult the file in that directory to verify the existence of the file and its permissions:

Quote:

-rw ------- 1 gdm gdm 11700 November 27 3:32. ICEauthority
I've checked some forums, but apparently they relate to other scenarios that describe the solution does not work

Please community, help me.

Hi,

Solution:

ctrl + alt + F1 (text mode), Stop Xserver.

Execute the below command:

Code:

su -
chown -R root:root /var/lib/gdm
shutdown -r now

Shouldn't it be enough to change the ownership and/or permissions of /var/lib/gdm? Many programs and services use files in /var/..., most of them have nothing to do with login. You changed the owner and group of everything in /var/ to root, brute-force-style. This can lead to mysterious errors in the future.
