Cannot login as root in Red Hat 7.3 (network connection error...)

I have a T1 line that works fine on Windows 98.

For now I'm not even trying to get it to work on my Linux partition, just to login as root, but even that I can't.

When trying to login as root, I get the following message:

There was an error settingp up inter process communication for KDE.

Message: Could notread network connection
list //.DCOPserver_localhost.localdomain_0

Check that the dcopserver program is running.

Kind Regards
Stephane

Hi,

    You said that you have a T1 line. Does that mean that you want to connect to a linux box which is behind a T1 line ? It looks like that you have a problem with kdm and that you are using a graphical interface. So Could you tell us how this is working when you use a simple command line.

Thanks.

Bye.

In fact when I said a T1 line, I meant a network connection, with an Ethernet card, to the Internet.
My computer is a laptop, it has this network card that connects it to the Net.
The graphical interface is KDE. I don't know which commands to type in. I'm a novice...

If you're logging in locally(on the console), it sounds like you have your system set for runlevel 5(X-Windows), and there's a problem with your X configuration. I would try hitting Ctrl-Alt-F1 or Ctrl-Alt-F2 at the login prompt. This should get you back to a shell prompt. Log in here, and rerun XConfigurator to reset your X settings. If that goes through fine, try creating a file called .xinitrc and placing it in your home directory, with the following content:
/usr/bin/gnome-session. This will switch your desktop from KDE(which may be configured incorrectly, or missing key files), to GNOME.
If console login works, but remote login(over the T1) doesn't, check your bash(or other shell's) init(rc) file, to make sure you're not trying to start x on remote logins.

Okay I will try all of that. Cheers!
Just for info, I did not install Gnome, but just KDE.
And when logging as a normal user (non root), I can open a console anddo a su.

Now I'll be off for a few days or more.
Flying to France...

Thanks!
