Hi.

I got a similar message when I moved my /tmp folder to a different location, and linked it back to /

Try dropping into single user mode
# telinit 1
and do
rm -f /tmp/*

Then either do
telinit 5
or
telinit 3 then startx

I don't know what actually causes the problem, but that cleared it last time it happened to me.

Dave
