Cannot log in - session lasted lest than 10 seconds message
« on: August 18, 2013, 12:39:56 pm »
I am using Vector 7installed from the Live CD.

I generally log in to my own user account.

Sometimes, in the past, I have been given the "session lasted lest than 10 seconds message" and login has failed.  I have assumed this is because of a mis-typed password because a second attempt has always succeeded.  However, this is not happening now.  I get the same message every time.

I am able to log in as root and open a terminal.  Then I can su to my account and it seems to work fine.  There is ample disk space.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Modified:  Working as root , I discovered I had deleted a file that was called from my .bashrc file.  I put the file back and the problem has gone away.  This is good for now.

But I'll change my question to: Is there a way to prevent login failure if .bashrc encounters a problem?



Thanks in advance.
