installed slim 1.3.2 now can only log in as root


Distro: Slackware14 x86-64

I just installed slim as my login manager via slackbuilds. After altering /etc/rc.d/rc.4 to execute slim & rebooting I only have the option of logging in as root.

checking /var/log/slim.log shows

Code:
X.Org X Server 1.12.3

/usr/bin/xauth:  file /var/run/slim.auth does not exist
When I go to my users /home dir the file .Xauthority is already present but .xsession wasn't so I decided to copy roots .xsession & changed the permissions accordingly (i guess not)

after making those changes now i get:

I guess my next move should be to change those files again then deal with:

Code:
/usr/bin/xauth:  file /var/run/slim.auth does not exist
What am I missing here?
I originally tried installing slim 1.3.5 but I couldn't figure out which file to patch so I went with 1.3.2

Not sure if this is relevant but hopefully it is. After installing Slackware I logged in as root & maybe thats when the .xsession file was created for root. I then downloaded and installed the Nvidia proprietary driver, disabled nouveau or vice versa, set default run level to 4, and finally created my user and logged in.

If my user never logged in initially is it safe to assume no .xsession was made for him becuase he used the Nvidia driver from the begining?
