Re: Upgrading from 3.1.X to 3.2.2 : KDM not working anymore

This is an old thread I found in the archives (so I have no choice
than breaking the thread)
It has surely been resolved since but in doubt I will answer anyway
because I had the same problem.

This is simple, when the disk is full users can't write to tmp so X is
killing himself. Only root can log in. Next time that someone talk
about this we'll know what to answer ;-)
