    Hmm... that is a different issue then. I'm not sure about the reason, but you can surely run the commands from the recovery console (reboot > press 'Shift' (or 'Esc' key in some cases) to get the grub menu > choose "recovery mode" > drop to root shell > run the commands there.

    Once we have the space problem solved, we can focus on these extra issues.

    By the way, the command is not just "sudo apt-get purge" if that's what you tried. It has to be the full line as posted in the code box (for example - sudo apt-get purge linux-image-2.6.28-11-generic) - one line at a time > let it finish its job > run next line of command.

    I really appreciate your help, but I must be getting to bed, it is 1:20 a.m. here and I have to be at work in 6 hours. I will try to do the recovery mode and remove the kernels and let you know tomorrow evening. Thank you again!

    Re: Login Loop

    Ok, I'm back. Should I try to use Puppy LInux or another way? I have that CD right here.

    Re: Login Loop

    so I'm not a linux pro by any means but should i reboot, and change the boot sequence to CD first - then is it pretty self explanitory? I'm going to try to get into that directory and delete a few things right?

    When you first start the computer you should be able to access a "Boot Options" menu by pressing one of your function keys or esc. Select the DVD with puppy to boot. It will start up and in the lower left corner of the desktop you should see icons for all attached hard-drives. Right click on the hard-drive with your linux partion with the problem and select "show location" (I think) and navigate to your affected HOME directory. Find the .Xauthority file and delete it.

    Then you hopefully will be able to log back into unity after you restart the computer.

    OK, positive I deleted the file(s) there was a backup also and I deleted that. Still the same problem. I can navigate in the /dev/sda1 directory with puppy, but don't know what to delete to give me enough room to login.
