I think I've messed up my system.
I've been using KDE for a while. Recently, I tried to install a software called gnome-connection manager. I downloaded the deb package, converted it to rpm using alien and installed it. A few seconds later, system crashed and I had to restart it.
After the restart, instead of the login gui, i ended up in a console, and I couldnt login to it. If I provide an incorrect password, it says the password is incorrect, but if the password is correct, nothing happens and it will ask for the username and password again.
However I can login as root and then 'startx' to get the desktop. I tried to clear the /tmp directory, cleared the .gconf folders and restarted several times. But I can only login as root user...
Can any one suggest a way to get into my normal user account?
