I'm running Slackware 13.37 with Robby Workman's Xfce 4.8 and a pile of addons either from SBo or from myself.
Since yesterday I have a strange error. When starting up the machine, the first login attempt with GDM fails... or rather, it succeeds, but then I have an error message informing me that my session lasted less than 10 seconds. Now, if I validate that and get back to GDM, I can retry a login, and this second attempt succeeds.
Here's the .xsession-errors file:
/etc/X11/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...

A few details:
1) This machine is a multiple-boot box I use for building Slackware packages. It's an old AMD64 that dual-boots Slackware and Slackware64, so I can build packages for either architecture. The login problem only happens on the 32-bit side, never on the 64-bit side.
2) Yesterday I installed and configured Infinality (http://someslack.wordpress.com/infinality-on-slackware/
). The problem has arised approximately around that time, but I don't know if it's got anything to do with it.
I'm clueless here. Any idea what's going on?
