Root can log on, user account can't. "Error in service module"
Fedora Core 5
I was playing Enigma when I accidentally hit the 'a' key and it killed my marble. (Don't worry if you don't play Enigma; it's only slightly relevant.) In order to see if there were any more keys I should avoid, I began striking them in alphabetical order. Somewhere around 'r' I was logged out and dumped back to the GUI login.
I can log on as root at both GUI and command line. If I try to log on as my user account from the GUI I get an "Authentication failed" window. Clicking OK takes me back to the username prompt. If I try to log on as my user account from the command line I get the error "Error in service module" and the next line is a Username prompt. I've reset the user account password but that has had no effect.
First, anybody know why my walking the alphabet would have kicked me out? Did I hit some magic sequence of keystrokes? Second, how do I undo what I've done? Yes, I know I can create a new user and copy the files, but that's a workaround, not a solution.
