Description of problem:
Running Rawhide as of 24-01-06 I am unable to log in to GNOME as a user (commandline works fine), root however can log in via gdm just fine.
Trying to su to a fresh useraccount and running a program yeilds:
[foobar@price root]$ evolution
** ERROR **: I can't write to '/tmp/orbit-foobar', ORB init failed
(this error message is repeated infintely)
Logging in via gdm as a user yeilds a message saying that my session lasted less than 10 secs.
This happens both with selinux=0 and on a regular SELinux enabled boot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log on as user via gdm
Actual Results: 2. cry as you are rejected
Expected Results: 2. displaying of beautiful FC5 desktop, joy and possibly world domination
This turned out to be wrong permissions for /tmp, how this happened I don't
know.. any idea as to which update could have reset it to wrong permissions?
no idea. I assume this is fixed now ? If not, reopen.
