Ubuntu on Beagle logging off

Hi,
I installed Ubuntu Lucid on my beagleboard. Everything was working fine.
Than I installed bunch of other stuff like apache, mysql etc on it.

After I rebooted I got back to XFCE4 login screen.

When I try to log in, it takes my username and password, and starts doing something, but within 5 seconds I’m back to login prompt again.

What could cause this? Have anybody else noticed this?
How to fix this?

Hum, this maybe wrong password, or date at 1969, or write permissions on your /home directory

Hi,
Thanks for advice.
Password is correct, since with wrong password it would give “authentication error” and wouldn’t continue from login window.
I also took SD card to my laptop and changed all permissions to 777 on my home directory.
You were right about the date. For some reason it is showing year 1969. I changed the date by logging in with serial console. After that I logged in with X. But this didn’t help.
It still returns back to login window after username and password is given.

I really want to be able to login, since I did a lot of updates to my system.
Any ideas for next step? Do you know where date info is stored in ubuntu? is it in some file?

Check whether you are having enough space in the disk.I faced this
problem manytimes in my desktop , while my Operating System partition
is full.So press cntrl + Alt +f2 and login there.And see the disk
space.

This might be it…I remember the SD card was getting pretty full.
I need to remove some files and try again.
Thanks.
