GDM Problems.. Need Help


Hello everyone,

im new to linux nad just got it working after a head on battle getting my graphic card to work.

now i have another problem..

When i try to login as my normal user.
I get an error message that reads

GDM could not write to your authorization file, you may
be out of diskspace, or that it could not open my home
directory for writting. but in either case your screwd
contact you adminitrator

when i log in as root i have no problems.

would someone have any idea what may have caused this and what its solution is..
i've read the earlier post about this issue but non of them threads had an answer.

Thanks in advanced for your help.

not sure if this helps but. i checked /home/user/.Xauthority file and it was empty

I checked /root/.Xauthority and it was not..
not sure if that helps or not but just thought I would add it
