Hi everybody,

           i am new to solaris. i have a problem after logging into solaris 9 os. when i boot my solaris machine there is no problem. its displaying the login window with "welcome to machinename". after giving my username and password, its logging in and displaying sun splash screen. after 4 or 5 seconds, its again displaying login window. I couldnt get into the desktop of the machine. whenever i give the username and password, its repeating.

        Where the problem will be? will it be the installation problem. or it may be any other problem in os. I couldnt find what the problem is. can anybody give me the solution immediately.


thanks in advance

regards,

vignesh p

Do you login as a normal user?
check your home dir permissions, user must be the owner of their home dir!

Can you login as root?

Check /var/adm/messages file if there is any error messages.

Switch to console log in. Assuming you're using CDE there should be an option on the login screen allowing you to do this.

Log in as root on the console. Look for files such as .xsession-errors in root's home directory(or the CDE equivalent, I'm not sure what that is) - these should give you clues as to why your X session is terminating.

Can you log successfully as any other users?
