cannot write to .ICEauthority as of using a new .bash_profile


after losing everything to a F10->F11 grub phenomenom ,
I have worked my way back (until today)
to a working F10
I was just getting back to restoring the original working bash_profile (at the bottom)
and after logging out, I could not log back in even after reboot.
I get a message about ...cannot update (or write) to .ICEauthority

I created a new user and cannot even log into the new user.
I can however log into root
Even a su - to either user will not work

[root@eugenemachine ~]# su - oracle
su: warning: cannot change directory to /home/oracle: Permission denied
-bash: /home/oracle/.bash_profile: Permission denied
-bash-3.2$ logout via control d
-bash: /home/oracle/.bash_logout: Permission denied
[root@eugenemachine ~]#

[root@eugenemachine oracle]# ls -alF|more

some post recommended I delete .ICEauthority and reboot but that didn't work.
I did save .ICEauthority just in case

solved problem using chmod 755 or 777...but how did this happen in the first place

why did I use 777 and intentionally mess up some permissions???

I went to the limit to see (at least) if this was the problem!

Now that it is fixed, I can backoff the permissions

[root@eugenemachine oracle]# lsa /home
total 24
drwxrwxrwx 4 root root 4096 2009-09-28 16:17 ./
