Re: Help! Can't log in as self

Well, that was wierd.

I experimented with every possible thing, and finally, i moved my .xsession file out of the way and that did it.
It was a new file, but it contained only the line "xset b 0", and I dont know why this would cause the entire
start to crash.

But i seem to be back in business!
