Yesterday I installed 11.2 on my machine, and I don't succeed to login to my
useraccount under X. It prompts for the user, and when I enter the name, and
subsequently the password, the system goes away for 1 or two seconds after
hitting enter, and then comes back with the login screen. When I enter the
name again, and thereafter password, the same happens again. No error-
message, just comes back like if nothing happened. No error with the
if I enter a different password, it gives a "wrong password"-message. On a
console (under eg. alt-ctl-F2)I can login without a problem. But not under
Can't find a message in /var/log/messages, the only log I can imagine as a
place for error-messages.
Or does a different log give better indications?
Anyone a hint?

The last time this happened to me I had made a bugeroo with PAM.
The time before that I had made a mess hand editing the config file for KDM.
Before that I had done something stupid with the xorg.conf, but that
probably doesn't apply these days.

annoy me. - Fred Allen
