[McIDAS #EFX-757750]: Troubleshooting CentOS-6.1-64bit

Hi Kwan,

> /dev/sda1       283M   53M  215M  20% /boot

Ah Ha!

Yes, I would say that this is the source of your problem.  When the root file
system ('/') fills, users are not able to write files (but 'root' is up to
a point).  This would definitely account for your desktop environment not
showing up!

Sounds good.  Let me know if freeing up space in '/' solves your problem.
