    Your session only lasted less that ten seconds


    I'me getting the following when attempting to logon from my Linux desktop..

    Lads,



    When you attempt to log into the MMSX from the console device in the rack(KVN) I'm seeing the following error directly after entering the password and username.

    "Your session only lasted less that ten seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem or that yuou may be out of diskspace. Try logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix the problem"


    I have a checkbox - View Details (~/.xsession-errors file) which when checked dsiplays the following.

    /root/.Xclients: line 8: /root/.Xclients-default: No such file or directory

    /root/.Xclients: line 8: exec: /root/.Xclients-default: cannot execute: No such file or directory

    I've looked at root for Xclients and cannot find, Anybody any Ideas?

    I had this happen to me just yesterday, and it was because I'd run out of room on my /home directory.

    Any chance you could be out of room?

    I used a live CD to erase the extra junk I'd accidentally put there. Then, it was fine.

    Some distros won't let you log in to X as root.
    There is a way to change this, but there really is a reason for root not to have X availability.

    I don't know about d_regal_jester, but when I got that same error, I wasn't trying to log in as root.

    This implies to me that d_regal_jester is trying to login as root in X.
