That should be already fixed, please report if it still persists. Thanks.

it need probably changed by

gdm:x:42:42:GDM:/var/lib/gdm:/bin/bash (this is for gdm version 3)

because the new gdm work directory is /var/lib/gdm

this new directory is already your package.

the gdmsetup file in your package are probably obsolet

because i think gdm-setup, is not present in gdm version3
gmgf you are most probably 100% right, since this is alpha version, we need this to fix such kind of things, many thanks. Better is if you can fill up tickets on sf.net. Anyway thanks for pointing things out, and whatever you see not working is most probably wrong by our side.

gdmseup is something our script puts in because of the old gdm2 we had before.
So far, I don't remember we ever used /var/stat as gdm home. Anyway thanks and we will try to check this out. I'm aa bit busy these days but shortly we should have more things sorted out.

Happy new year to all of you !!!

Happy new year for you and all, also.......

Just suggestion,

another suggestion, gsb slackbuild, had a good enhancement for the package 'gnome-session',

for starting gnome with xwmconfig and startx since the console:

just consist by added 'xinitrc.gnome' in /etc/X11/xinit

the source hare here:

http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/gsb/gsb-3....gnome-session/

this work perfectly here.

AFAIK it should work in that way. we also create xinitrc.gnome. I have not checked it but it should be there.

I have linked /usr/libexec/gnome-session-check-accelerated and /usr/libexec/gnome-session-check-accelerated-helper

to /usr/lib/gnome-session/gnome-session-check-accelerated and /usr/lib/gnome-session/nome-session-check-accelerated-helper

it seem gdm, need this, because it search these file in /usr/lib/gnome-session and not in /usr/libexec

and gdm do not work correctly, without these links, here...

Ok nice tip, thanks. I have prepared some updates, to get them just re-run dropline-installer.

So far something seems not working well, because my VM is crashing the desktop all the time. Can somebody urgently confirm me this ?

Your 'gdm-3.6.2' package contain /var/lib and /var/lib/lib

probably the good things are in /var/lib/lib, but need tu push it on /var/lib

(i don't love this gdm3 version , because is verry difficult to make work, it is slow, it has many defects,

but unfortunately, it's needed for the gnome-shell).

probably it need to compil it with these options:

--with-at-spi-registryd-directory=/usr/libexec
--with-check-accelerated-directory=/usr/libexec (it's needed for searchs the accelerated gnome session, in the good directory /usr/libexec)

Yeah, thanks gmgf, we noted that. I think Bart or Eugene is working on the gdm package.
We will try to make it work well as much as possible.
