after losing everything to a F10->F11 grub phenomenom ,
I have worked my way back (until today)
to a working F10
I was just getting back to restoring the original working bash_profile (at the bottom)
and after logging out, I could not log back in even after reboot.
I get a message about ...cannot update (or write) to .ICEauthority

I created a new user and cannot even log into the new user.
I can however log into root
Even a su - to either user will not work

[root@eugenemachine ~]# su - oracle
su: warning: cannot change directory to /home/oracle: Permission denied
-bash: /home/oracle/.bash_profile: Permission denied
-bash-3.2$ logout via control d
-bash: /home/oracle/.bash_logout: Permission denied
[root@eugenemachine ~]#

[root@eugenemachine oracle]# ls -alF|more

drwxr--r-- 7 oracle oracle 4096 2009-09-28 14:51 .beagle/

some post recommended I delete .ICEauthority and reboot but that didn't work.
I did save .ICEauthority just in case
