System will not accept my user-id/password, but will happily accept them in a console window. I recently upgraded my kernel and nvidia, but I've backed out of the nvidia and tried an older kernel that used to work. The last upgrade included some x11-libs so in the absence of any ideas here I'll back out of all of those. I've tried two display managers, and both come up, and allow me to enter my user id and password, but will not accept it. I'm looking for any other ideas that might help resolve this. Thanks,
Fred

I've tried backing out of the x11-lib packages just updated, and package.mask is not working. I'm really hoping for some idea of what to try next. Thanks,
Fred

I'm back in X. The problem was fixed by
Quote:
ln -s /usr/lib64/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/libEGL.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib64/libEGL.so.1
There was broken link there. I have no idea how that happened, and just hope that I'm linking to the right place.
