Login Issue on SUSe9 and CYGWIN

Greeting All,

I could use some help with a log-in issue on SUSe9 Enterprise Server. I normally CYGWIN into this box from my desktop with no issues. Recently, I am able to enter my username and password at the log-in window of that SUSe9 host, but after my credentials are entered, instead of accessing my xwindow or file manager windows, the login-box just disapears. After a few short minutes, the Suse9 login windows reapears again. It just does does over and over, regardless of what user account I use.

Any ideas to what may be causing this issue?

Appreciate any help…


Can you ssh onto the box (eg via putty) and in your user directory
check the .xsession-errors file and also /var/log/messages for some
