Question Can not log in, X-server crash

I just installed SUSE 9.1 linux. Everything works fine yesterday.

Suddenly, I can no longer log on in to my own account. It seems like X-server crash. After logging in , the screen went dark, then it return back to the log-in screen (I am sure it's not incorrect password) everytime. However, I could log on into KDE desktop with the root account without any problem.

Here is my configuration:
KDE 3.2.1
Kernel: 2-6.4-52
AMD Athlon XP+2500
ATI-Radeon 9100.

Thanks for any help in advance

First take a look at your X log file. Probably something like /var/log/X.log
