HELP! Cannot Login to KDE or GNOME


Hi, on my laptop I cannot login to KDE or GNOME on Fedora Core Three. I login as only a root. (That's the only username I have.) Is that bad if I login as root to play games, read e-mail, etc?:

This is the message I receive:


"....Your sesson only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have logged out yourself, this could mean there is a ..."

When I view the details I see this:

/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with
/etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/X11
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common: line 45: 3328 Segmentation f
Agent pid 3342
Failed to execute message bus daemon: No such file or directory
EOF in dbus-launch reading address from bus daemon

Please help!

using the comp as root is kind of dangerous. make a new user and log in with that.

adduser in console should do it
