Unhappy X wont start with ordinary users


I am currently using Red Hat 8.0 and have set up a couple of users. Everything has been fine - until now. When users try to log in, X wont start. That is, X window launches, but the usual range of icons appearing from left to right do not appear (system freezes) and I have to reboot the system.

Logging in and starting X as root is not a problem (it does seem a bit slower though) but starting X via a non-root login does not work

Any suggestions please ??

Well, try to delete ./gnome or ./kde or ./blackbox or whatever X manager you use from your /home/user directory and see if it helps...
