desktop manager death via livecd-creator
I didn't have the greatest first experience with livecd-creator.
I had 1.5 GB of diskspace available and I wrongly figured that was
enough to make a livecd. That got filled up while trying to make an
XFCE livecd using a modified (fixed repo name) ks file from
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RahulSundaram/XfceLive and the command:
After downloading the required rpms and installing them in the
loopback image, this crashed my Gnome session that was running at the
time and hung the system so I ctrl-alt-del to reboot. My system hung
while trying to unmount all the loopback filesystems that
livecd-creator was keeping busy so I hard rebooted.
Now my system does not start the gdm. After it goes though various
attempts to start X, it gives up for 2 minutes. In poking around the
command line, I can manually startx while the root user and get a
normal desktop but not as my normal unprivilaged user. It also seems
that while I have space left on the harddrive, it is not being freed
up and that might be part of my problem. Even after deleting a few
more files, the space doesn't show up as available when I do a df.
After booting from a livecd:
[root@localhost ~]# fsck /dev/sda2
fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
e2fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
/1: clean, 291067/31129600 files, 61905503/62257899 blocks
[root@localhost ~]# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on

There should be over 1 GB free but it is not showing up.
Anyone have an idea what broke?
