Re: gdmgreeter refuses to start in fc7

Just to explain that all the weirdness actually was originated  by untar, as root, of a tar.bz2 file in /tmp at 23.35 yesterday evening ;-(
This file contained at the very beginning:
tar jtvf archive.tar.bz2
drwxr-xr-x login/users         0 2007-03-19 13:56:20 ./
...

So this had the effect of changing permissions of /tmp dir from
drwxrwxrwt 48 root root 36864 2007-07-03 23:28 /tmp
to
drwxr-xr-x 46 1000 users 36864 2007-07-03 23:10 /tmp

(no mapping between uid 1000 and users on my system).

Sorry to all. I think to notify the author of the tar.....

After I convinced my wife to use Linux and three days of satisfied use of fc7, today it seems  the gdm greeter refuses to start... ;-(
I'm not at the PC but I connected remotely.
She says that at the screen she gets "the greeter refused to start, retry...". If she presses ok the same happens.
Already tried to restart but the same...

In messages I have:

Strange is that
 [[email protected] log]# ps -ef|grep -E "X|gdm" | grep -v grep
gives:

yesterday I used without problems the system that is an x86_64 updated fc7.
I updated several not apparently related packages:
In yum.log I have:
Jul 02 23:31:52 Updated: xvidcore.x86_64 1.1.3-1.lvn7
Jul 02 23:31:53 Updated: livna-config-display.noarch 0.0.14a-1.lvn7
Jul 02 23:31:53 Updated: k3b-extras-nonfree.x86_64 1.0.2-1.lvn7

then I manually installed these:
Jul 03 00:54:33 Installed: xmlrpc-c.x86_64 1.06.11-2.fc7
Jul 03 00:54:36 Installed: cmake.x86_64 2.4.6-3.fc7

Strange to say, yesterday I was proposed to upgrade gnome-menus to 2.19.4 but I deselected it
It seems strange as this should be a devel package not in mainstream fc7, or not?

After the problem today I tried to upgrade it
Jul 03 14:37:49 Updated: gnome-menus.x86_64 2.19.4-1.fc7

But nothing changes...
In its changelog I can misteriously see:
* Sun Jun 17 2007 Colin Walters < [email protected] > - 2.19.4-1
- Update to 2.19.4

* Tue May 29 2007 Matthias Clasen <[email protected]> - 2.18.2-1
- Update to 2.18.2
???

In /var/log/gdm I have:

[[email protected] gdm]# ls -lrt
total 32

Anyone experiencing this?
If I set KDE as desktop manager in /etc/sysconfig/desktop file, I get the kdm login screen, but trying to connect I get again the login screen and in messages:

Jul  3 15:19:45 localhost kdm_greet[5331]: Internal error: memory corruption detected
Jul  3 15:19:45 localhost kdm: :0[5355]: Can't execute "/usr/share/config/kdm/Xstartup
": No such file or directory
Jul  3 15:19:45 localhost kdm: :0[5448]: Can't execute "/usr/share/config/kdm/Xreset": No such file or directory

Jul  3 15:19:59 localhost kdm: :0[5559]: Can't execute "/usr/share/config/kdm/Xreset": No such file or directory

Strange that under /usr/share/config/kdm/ there are only Xreset.rpmnew and Xstartup.rpmnew ....
I renamed them as Xreset and Xstartup but nothing changes
If I set XDM in /etc/sysconfig/desktop I get the xdm login and I'm able to log in with a primitive X session.... ;-)

Also, doing a startx from init3 I get correctly a root X Windows session....
rpm -vV gdm
gives no errors....
Can anyone point to a solution?
Thanks in advance,
Gianluca
