Ok, sound work now,

polkit-0.111 need probably this debian patch because wheel group, isn't used in slackware:

http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patc...up-wheel.patch

gdm doesn't work, but I do not know why, for the moment.

a good enhancement:

In my zenwalk gnome-session package i have added a xinitrc.gnome-classic, for that gnome classic mode, work, and start, with xwmconfig, and startx:

http://download.zenwalk.org/people/g....gnome-classic

(probably is better to push it or a similar, in your gdm package with the others xinitrc.* files)

gmgf,
for gdm in 3.8 its very important that you have hardware acceleration enabled.

can you tell me the problem in what way it does not work ?
if needed you can add the following line into /etc/gdm/custom.conf

[DEBUG]

Enable=True

gmgf, thanks for the sound confirmation. As for gdm I know it takes a long time to start, about a minute or so. This is something we had already in 3.6 as an issue but there is also some dbus settings to set up this. If this is the same issue. Otherwise I have no idea, because up to today i have not looked at all in gdm.

gmgf,

the problem is that the installer is installing the wrong subversion of pam.

please upgrade pam with the following package:

http://dropline.omgwtfroflol.com/3.6...6-i686-3dl.txz
http://dropline.omgwtfroflol.com/3.6...86-3dl.txz.md5

this will solve your problem with gdm

your ConsoleKit and polkit packages have problems, they break the shutdown reboot hibernate menu on all desktop environment, kde, gnome, xfce .........

ConsoleKit no need to be changed the slackware package work perfectly here,

your polkit package need absolutly to be pached with this patch:

http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patc...up-wheel.patch

it's the same bug i have reported to Pat here, in the polkit slackware package :


l/polkit-0.105-i486-4.txz: Rebuilt.
Reverted a patch that set the members of the wheel group as the
authorized administrators. On Slackware, root is the administrator
and the wheel group is mostly unused. Thanks to Gérard Monpontet.

the doinst.sh in the polkit and gdm packages, make more error when you install them manually.

with the new pam package gdm start, but doesn't start any wm, it restart indefinitely, when i choose kde gnome or xfce

hi gmgf, rebuild of polkit will be done, please be aware the polkit 0.111 patch is differrent.
if gdm starts but after selecting any wm, keeps restarting. than you do not have hardware acceleration.
please check the X.org log to verify this.
GDM 3.8 will not start sessions if there is no hardware acceleration.

Consolekit has been rebuilt for pam support and so has polkit.

gmgf,

can you also check if the following applies to you.
If you have bash-completion installed.
than pulseaudio generate errors on some systems.
please backup/move the following file: /etc/bash_completion.d/pulseaudio-bash-completion.sh

and tell me if this solves your gdm session problem

bartgymnast,

you're right the problem is due to this file /etc/bash_completion.d/pulseaudio-bash-completion.sh,

it seem, gdm work correctly, and my lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter packages rework also, now.

gmgf,

on the following link, you can find some updated packages.
that should solve doinst.sh errors.

http://dropline.omgwtfroflol.com/3.8/i686/
there are 2 colord packages supplied there, the 1.0.1 is giving problems on some systems. (64bit confirmed so far)
Can you test this version on your machine.
