can only starx as root


I am running 9.2 as a server and the bootup stops at runlevel 3 wich is cool. I cannot hower do a startx as any user other than root. root brings X up fine but any other user just hangs after startx is executed.

Any ideas where to start fault finding?

Regards

Make sure the user's home directory is not full.

Make sure the /tmp directory is not full.
