Solaris 10 JDS will not start for all users except root
Posted on 2009-04-04
The graphical interface (gnome-session) starts automatically for root.
Existing users and newly created users will not start: the graphical login screen comes up after a reboot, the login is accepted, but after a few wobbles, the screen returns to the graphical login.
If I choose the deprecated CDE works.
If I try to start gnome-session from a vncviewer, I see the following errors on the shell:
(gnome_segv:1658): WARNING **: Wrong permissions for /var/tmp/orbit-fkoutchouk
I do see such a directory:
drwxr-xr-x 2 fkoutchouk sysadmin 512 Apr 3 12:32 tmp
- It did work correctly before I worked around disk space problems with /
- It works perfectly for root
