Login error


Hello,

I'm trying to modify my xorg.conf, but I did something that unable my login. The Xserver works, the login window appears, but when I write my password, the login flash out an then the page return to "user name: ". So I have to put my password 3, 4 ,or 5 times, and then the red background freezes. Right now, from the freeze window, it has returned to password login page.

What should I do? Could the xorg.conf has anything to do with it?

tanks you

You may need to reset your password. Here's a HOWTO. It was at the top of the search results, but I haven't tested it, so proceed with caution.
