GDM user 'gdm' does not exist


Hi,

I was working on a Salix live host in order to continue building the essentials to a basic LFS toolchain.

All I did was make the final preparations of creating the $LFS/tools directory, add the lfs user, setup the environment and mounted virtual kernel file systems to enter the chroot environment.

Then i just rebooted the machine! And I had a new problem.

The GDM user 'gdm' does not exist please correct gdm configuration and restart gdm


Salix does not come up after that. What should I do ? Have I made an error somewhere?

Help will be greatly appreciated

I would try to reinstall gdm or look at the config, which user was set?
