Hey guys thanks for the fast responses. Been digging on the diffrent facets of the problem since about 3 AM. Here is what I've found (incidentally if my dumb a** had read the entire error log I'd have probably figured it out sooner..duh!). By the way, the error was on MY machine...not the .iso, I'm not sure if I mentioned that in the original post.
At the bottom of the GtK WARNING: I found this:
could not set mode 0700 on private per-user gnome configuration directory '/home/username/.gnome2_private/': operation not permitted
This caused GtK problems with the /compiz from what the failsafe terminal "gnome-session" told me (two processes failing, two problems in the /compiz file). Those /compiz files were looking for information in /home/username. My own fault for trying to push the envelope with remastersys I'm afraid , and take compiz settings with the .iso(boy am I glad I didn't start talking trash
RTFM, I knew better). The program otherwise has been a complete success on several old Dell Latitudes with Ubuntu 7.04 and Lockdown Editor installed and configed. Like I said my bad, for not thinking about the Nvidia drives and compiz config. Some how the permissions on the /home/username/gnome2 file were changed to make the .iso (remastersys is supposed to do that right?) and weren't changed back, and that's what caused all the trouble I think. Did some digging, and thanks to a kid here:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=445645
found this fix
log on with fail safe terminal
chown -R username /home/username
sudo reboot now
BANG! up and running. No probs, even burned off my .iso...though I'm afraid to use it
Many Thanks, I'll be sure to pass on my next dist-adventure (ok lame sorry..really short on sleep here guy's, sorry about the grammar and spelling atrocities too).
