Hello, after I update fc7 to fedora 10, I cannot start an X session

The mouse pointer does not show up and the gnome session never starts.

root user is OK.
I boot in test mode.

What's the permissions of the /tmp directory?  I've seen that sort of
thing in prior releases, because there was a problem there.

[tim suspishus ~]$ ls -dl /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 53 root root 4096 2009-03-03 01:01 /tmp

        ^ that "t" being crucial, as well as rwx for all the others.

drwxrwxrwt 59 root root 7168 2009-03-02 14:32 /tmp
