OS Crashes after I Login

Postby jtaylor3222 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 9:55 pm

I get to the login screen, I enter my username and password and then I get the following message:

/etc/mdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
localuser:jt being added to access control list
Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_US.
Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.
xfce4-session: Unable to access file /home/jt/.ICEauthority: Input/output error

Has anyone run into this, any idea on how to fix it?

At the login screen use Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to a virtual terminal and login, use rm ~/.ICEauthority to delete the file (put sudo in front if it says permission denied), then use Ctrl+Alt+F6/7 to switch back to gui and login again.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
