can't login as regular user (root only)


hi folks,

i've just installed mandrake 9.1, and i was quite impressed, how easy it was.
but now, i cannot login as regular user. after 2 sec a screen appears telling me, that something went wrong (some permissions were denied), but this was the user i made during the installation.

does this mean anything to you?

gracias

alex

It is not a question I wouild normally answer but you have been waiting a while.

As it is a new installation and there is no user configuration to lose I would try to work around the problem and add another new user.

As root - yes, I know, that is all you can do enter the following command in a console

# adduser newname

Put in a password twice as prompted and then you may find that you can log in as an ordinary user. If not post again.
