Ok. Slight problem. I ran the above ls -l .dmrc and it looked similar
to yours but we lost power. When the pc came back up I have a new
"Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged
out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem
or that you may be out of diskspace. Try logging in with one of the
failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem."
Well, Im not out of diskspace so it must be something else.
What the heck is failsafe?
Under the message it says View details (~/.xsessions-errorls file) and
it contains this:
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/x11r6/bin/sessreg - a -w
/var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x */var/lib/gdm/:0.Xservers* -h "" -l

What have I done?
