    Cool Debian login


    Dear Debian users...

    I installed Debian just yesterday...
    all installation process was ok, but screen resolution
    was 640 X 480.

    I try to change to 800 X 600 and 1024 x 768

    I use sudo dkpg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and it seem
    to me that will be ok.

    BUT When i reboot my pc, the login screen is prompting
    to get my user name and password.

    I write my user name and password and as it seems to me
    OK, th login screen is be back. Now each time that i
    boot my pc, it's always the same... just the login page!!!

    How i can correct this tricky problem?

    You need to login each time you reboot. Are you able to get into X after you login?

    It looks like .ICEauthority file has been corrupted. Press Alt+Ctrl+F1. Does it allow you to log in?
    Press Aly+Ctrl+F7 to switch back to GUI.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Login as regular user and execute this
    Code:
    cd
    mv .gnome2 gnome2.bak
    mv .gconfd gconfd.bak
    exit
    Press Alt+Ctrl+F7. Try to login again. In case it doesn't work, reboot machine.

    Okk !

    Press Alt+Ctrl+F1 again and login as regular user.
    Create new user and try to login through new user id. Let say, new User Id is simon.
    Code:
    su -
    adduser simon -d /home/users/simon
    passwd simon
    exit
    exit

    Thumbs up Tanks a lot devil casper...

    Tanks a lot devil casper...

    Since few minuts, i replace debian by OpenSuse...the
    installation process is hardest... and it's look
    so pretty. Now The most important thing is: "Don't
    change configuration parameters before reading
    documentation"

    Sorry if i used too much of your precious time.

    If you want to know much about me... look at
