deleted /tmp now kde/gnome won't work



Hi all

I was running out of space on / , so I thought

 <lightbulb on>
	 !I know I'll clear /tmp cos it's 100M!
 </lightbulb off>

Very easy rm -rf /tmp

Now when I log on all I get is a blank,blue screen with mouse pointer.

I have tried changing the session to both KDE & Gnome, but no luck.

I can get a failsafe terminal though & if I log in as root, Gnome works.

What have I done? /tmp always used to be just that temporary, I even had
a script on a previous system to clear it at reboot for security.
