Gnome 3/video driver problem - hangs at blue screen


Hello,

My attempts to install gnome3 on Arch prove to be ineffective. Once I initialize the gnome with startx, it hangs at this screen:

My GPU is an nvidia gtx 260M. There have been no issues using the proprietary nvidia drivers with any other display manager except this one. Next, I uninstalled the nvidia drivers and installed open-source (nouveau) drivers; the end result was the same.

Here are some of the logs -

daemon.log:

Gnome-session seems to be showing some issues in the logs, but I do not know what to do.

Those seem to be seperate, you have everything required installed?
