Redhat Linux 7.3 window manage won't come up and stops at the command prompt for username/password. It was originally cycling past this screen and trying to boot in a loop. I broke out of the loop, rebooted and noe stops at the password prompt without bringing up KDE. I was installing mySql to boot at startup and this is working, but along the same time when problem began. Any ideas?

Have you try to log in and check the /etc/inittab file the entry of Default runlevel? this should be "id:5:initdefault:", what does it show now?

and after you login have you try startx, will the xwindows (KDE) come up? if no, try to run the xwindows configurator to reconfig your xwindows. Xconfigurator will be the command to run.

The /etc/inittab looks as displayed above. The Xfree86.0.log displays the following.
'Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!'

Fatal server error:
Could not open default font 'Fixed'


Is this the problem? How do I recover?

/tmp was full, which was causing the problem.
