garnome w/ rh 8.0

I tried to find either a .xinitrc file or .xsession file in my home directory but neither were there, so i created a new .xsession file as specified in garnome's readme. The session didn't show up in the list at startup, so i added a file to /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions which was a copy of the existing "Gnome" file, but it pointed to my .xsession file instead.

Now, garnome shows up in my sessions menu, but if i choose it and log in, i immediately get a "You were logged in for 10 seconds or less" error and it kicks me out."

Anything i'm missing?

I had the same problem with RH 8.0 with Garnome 0.23.1. I got rid of the problem by adding a file in /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions, just like you did. But instead of making the file point to .xsession I pointed it to a garnome-session -file in my homedir, which just starts the garnome. The file is described in
Everything worked, until I tried to use garnome with a different user than root (where garnome is installed). The result was the same error you described.. I think it could be because other users have no permits to access /root/.. (not sure, I'm a newb )
