Please forgive me for cross posting in this and in comp.so.linux.x, but I'm
rather desparate right now.
I had uninstalled cabaret since I had fstool as well (they basically do
the same things) to save some room and I think that's the root of my
problem, although I can't see how that would've resulted to this.
I was in X as a non-root user, but had cabaret uninstalled as root in one
of the xterms and the problems started right after that when in another
xterm as the non-root user, the basic commands even like "ls" would not
take. It'd either say "bash:no such command" or "/bin/ls: permission
So, I came out of X by "Ctrl-Alt-Bckspc" and the error messages that were
printed said something like "can't locate /usr/tmp/statfs" or something
along that line.
So, I rebooted the system to see what happens and now when I try to login
as one of the non-root users, it would go as far as taking the password
and print out the motd, but would kick me out immediately, back to the
login prompt. Root still has full access and function of the system.
I'm running RH5.0, kernel 2.0.34. I'd appreciate some help in this matter
as I'm rather in a hurry to get my system back up running; school's just
started and already have an assignment due by the end of next week. Thank
you very much in advance.
