Post some info!!

Of key importance:

Xorg.0.log (after failed session) [please just 10 or so lines]

Xorg.conf

dmesg|tail (after failed session)

lspci

modprobe -l|grep vga

That can help in diagnosis of the problem!
Yes I have started hal
Yes there is only one in xinitrc

I also posted this on the Arch user forum, but I'm hoping I can get a response here.

can you post reponse to "grep -F DAEMONS /etc/rc.conf"? Also, I saw your .xinitrc on the Arch forums, once you have verified that "dbus hal" are in the daemons array, try using "exec ck-launch-session gnome-session" instead.

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng network netfs crond hal)

I read somewhere that you don't need to add dbus because it is started with hal. I have no idea if that is correct, that's just what I read. Should I add it and try again?

well, it's what I did based on recommendations in the HAL wiki simply because of failed dbus unloads, but you're right, the DBUS wiki doesn't mention it. I'm only suggesting this because of the consolekit errors I saw, which is used by dbus, you might only have to modify the .xinitrc accordingly.

If I read that correctly, I need to modify .xinitrc? What would I need to add? Or could I just add dbus to the list of daemons?

EDIT: here is my everything.log http://www.sendspace.com/file/2w3mn1

does http://pastebin.com/ have a file size limit? it's a nice tool, considering I don't want to download your everything.log.

and you'd just change your line with "gnome-session" or "exec gnome-session" on it to "exec ck-launch-session gnome-session".

I tried pastebin before uploading it but the file was to big

I also have tried using "exec ck-launch-session gnome-session" before and it didn't work. I'll go try again though.

Post some info!!

Question: Have you installed your Video Card with pacman -S 'xf86-video-yourcard' ?

Of key importance:

Xorg.0.log (after failed session) [please just 10 or so lines]

Xorg.conf

dmesg|tail (after failed session)

modprobe -l|grep vga

That can help in diagnosis of the problem!

Try putting these in the rc.conf:

dbus_enable="YES"
polkitd_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES

Arch doesn't use that style rc.conf.

But yes, please, post those things that the previous posters mentioned.

My video card is integrated into my motherboard. I don't know what type it is. But it worked the first time so I don't think it is because I don't have it installed.

Here is my video card though. I might need to add it to Xorg.conf:
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

Ok here it is:

I hope that helps.

Here is an image of the screen I get. It is weird because it works perfectly the first time, but when I reboot, it does this:

Notice the two white lines at the top.

First install your video card like so:
Quote:
pacman -S xf86-video-intel
Also, you can use 'hwdetect' to aid your the OS in finding your hardware:
Quote:
pacman -S hwdetect
Quote:
hwdetect -s
Then, try putting these lines into your Xorg.conf...

Quote:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
HorizSync 30.0 - 130.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 100.0

EndSection
Quote:
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" # Your screen resolution here.
Try those, and post back if the error remains.
