Re: X Window


Seems like I've got big problems.

On reboot I get a message about USERS: GROUP WRITABLE DIRECTORY FAILED

I can start XFS from the command line, but system says that there is no
command STARTX when it is clearly there.

I have attached log from /var/log/messages, and hope someone can make sense
and rescue me.
