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

    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]
    <mailto:[email protected]>> - 2.19.4-1
    - Update to 2.19.4

    * Tue May 29 2007 Matthias Clasen <[email protected]
    <mailto:[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

    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


Relax. What you think your tar changed is not changed. the permissions you show are what I have. There is no way tar will change directories.
