X11 install hosed login
I've got Debian "potato" installed on a Quadra 650 and running nicely.
After I installed the X11R6 package, which appeared to go smoothly, I am no
longer able to login to the system.
The system boots, and gets to the login prompt ok, except for the fact that
the hostname is listed as "(none)". When I enter a valid user & password,
login processes it then fails to load bash, and I'm sitting at the login
prompt again. Anyone else ever heard of this?
I tried to fix this manually, mucking around in inittab, rcS, and other
places, but I'm no Unix guru, and I haven't come across anything that
appears to be the cause of the problem.
Thanks for any help you might have.
