I am getting an error as "GDM could not write to your authorization file" if I try to login as a non root user in my RHEL system. I restarted the machine hoping that the tmp files will be cleared and so I will not get this error on booting. However, I still get the error. I ran the
df -h command and I got the below output.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda2 39G 39G 0 100% / /dev/sda5 102G 33G 64G 34% /opt /dev/sda1 99M 12M 83M 13% /boot tmpfs 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /dev/shm
I read in this link that clearing log files should help. But
logrotate should be doing it and even if I delete the log files I might encounter the same error in future. Is there any specific reason for this error? What should I try to increase the space on
/dev/sda2 so that I can ensure non-root users can login to the machine?
