Unable to login anymore !! Is it x windows


Hi,
I am unable to log into my red hat 9.0 !. This is the message am getting -

Your session only lasted less then 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may be out of disk space. try logging in in one of the fail safe sessions to see if you could fix this problem

/etc/x11/xdm/xsession/ line 115:/usr/bin/ssh-agent/etc/x11/
xinit/xclients no such file or directory
/etx/x11/xadm/xsession line 115: exec
/usr/bin/ssh-agent/etc/x11/xclient

I did try logging in in all modes to no avail ( both for root and my other user id ).

Is this problem fixable. Am able to enter some sort of prompt from GRUB but i dont know what to do .am able to enter in rescue mode using cd ... but i dont quite know what to do

Please advice.

try a diffent window manager... if i remeber correctly when i got that error it was a problem with gnome not x. try installing fluxbox or xfce4 and starting it up after editing your ~/.xinitrc
