    Is this a new install?

    Did you try to boot from the Failsafe boot option?

    You shouldn't login as root.

    What graphics device do you have?

    Sounds like the root directory is full. How much space did you give it? Also look in /tmp and see if you have a bunch of huge files.

    Login as root and do this:
    Clear Temp Files at Boot

    reboot
    Try a normal login
