Gnome 2.6 freeze, slackware-current, Xorg


I upgraded to gnome 2.6 (from slackware-current), using swaret, seems to work but there is a small problem. I'm using gdm and can login to gnome as a normal user. however if i try to login to gnome as root it actually stops (i get gnome splash screen but those funny icons showing progess do not appear).
i removed all gnome/gtk settings for root and cleaned /tmp.
the same happens when i start X by startx
any ideas?

i recently had a similar problem with kde and a normal user...
think it had something to do with mcop-dcop-Xauthority and/or corruption with uid-group-passwd-shadow

a backup of my files, complete removal of the user, and re-adding that user cleared it up



however, i'm not sure how wise it would be to try to delete root...

check your /root/.ICEauthority file with an editor

there will be two lines that have that session-manager info

they should match

if not, delete /root/.ICEauthority (i just tested it on a normal user that was mismatched) and it will recreate itself to function properly on the next login
