Problem with authorization into window manager


today I was moving my system from old 40GB disk to "new" 80GB (the old one begins making noise and I think will die soon). I made a copy from old to new disk, installed bootloader a successfuly booted into login dialog for my KDE. There the problem strikes...

I'm unable to proceed with login. Every time I sent username and password, X server just restarts and give me login dialog back. Through terminal is everything ok, so it seem to be something wrong with X. Does anybody know where can be possible problem?



SOLVED: I'm just enough stupid to have wrong attributes on /tmp (RWX only for root). Setting RWX for everyone solved whole thing...
