Password problems

P: n/a
Running 10.2.

Sudden problems with my suse box - when i try to start it up it ignores
the auto login and presents me with the login page. Entering the usual
login on that page results in a black screen, flash of things starting
and then back to the login page.

The root login works okay.

Any clues would be gratefully appreciated!

Sounds like something in your login "sequence" i smessed up.

I have seen that happen after updates or after software installs where
scripts get executed to set environment variables for example.
If something there 'breaks' you might have trouble.
('it' taking too long might break the login process.)
Than of course there are the obvious, authentication servers that can
not be reached. time servers that are down. the login depending on nfs
mounts of the guy that is recovering from turkey at his inlaws and shut
of his machine for the long weekend.. etc etc etc..)
