I've got a server (VDS) on Debian. I have recently installed xfce (apt-get install xfce4) through SSH, and after doing that I can't login via SSH anymore.

Here is my ssh client output:

dmitry@dimitrios:~$ ssh -vl root 78.47.129.251
OpenSSH_5.8p1 Debian-7ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011

Any ideas?

What do the server logs say? –  womble Aug 2 '12 at 11:53

I hope you still access the server via direct connected display and keyboard. Check if the sshd_conf was changed. If that's not the reason, check out the xfce settings in Applications => Settings => Xfec4 Settings => Session and Startup.
