Re: the desktop messaging system could not be started

Hi Din,

Try to use an ssh or a telnet to login to the box.

Check if the hostname and IP-address are correctly configured.

# nslookup ip-of-host
# nslookup host-name
check the following file
/etc/hosts
/etc/nswitch.conf
/etc/resolv.conf

Re: the desktop messaging system could not be started

With what user are you trying to login (root)?

Is this user allowed to login directly? (sshd.config or /etc/securetty)
