Hallo,
Today when I start my PC(Pardus 2007.3) I receive the following message:
The following installation problem was detected while trying to start KDE
    Writing to temp directory(/tmp) failed with the error 'Permission denied'
    KDE is unable to start


When I push OK  then I recieve : Could not start ksmserver.Check your installation

What can I do ?

Hello Willy,

have you perhaps accidentally deleted your /tmp-File?

Greetings
Andreas

Have you changed something in your graphical configuration or installed a new graphic driver ?

If yes, try the following :

-1- Type Ctrl-Alt-F1

-2- Log in as normal user

-3- Restore the previous state of xorg.conf (with nano)
Code:
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

-4- Save and close nano

-5- Type startx, then press Enter

-6- Give us the information, especially the errors messages you get from Xorg. They are preceded by "(EE)".

If no, maybe your root partition is full.
What is the output of the following command ?

Code:
du -h

You have deleted the files in /tmp or the repository /tmp ?
If you have deleted /tmp, you can recreate it easily, by logging in as root, and typing the following commands :

Code:
mkdir /tmp
Code:
chmod 1777 /tmp
