Slackware 13.1 beta1 "Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session..."


i do a clean install of slackware64 13.1 beta1 with KDE and switch default runlevel to 4 in /etc/inittab.

I try to login in kdm, I always come back to the login....

I try this with default runlevel 3 and an .xinitrc with "ck-launch-session startkde" .. works without problems, so I switch back to default runlevel 4, now i can login and only get the error "Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session..."

here are some logs

Hi. I had the same problem with my installation. What I did was edit rc.local and rc.local_shutdown (thought this one I think it's not necessary) to load ConsoleKit-Daemon before log in to KDE. This is how it looks like:


if ! ps axc | grep -w console-kit ; then
        rm -f $(dirname $PIDFILE)/*
        if [ -x /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon ]; then
                echo "Starting ConsoleKit-Daemon:  /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon"
                /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon 1>/dev/null

if [ -e "$PIDFILE" ]; then
        echo "Stopping ConsoleKit-Daemon..."
        pid=$(cat $PIDFILE)
        kill $pid 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null
        killall console-kit 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null
        rm -f $PIDFILE

And everything should work fine. This idea has been taken from rc.messagebus, by Robby Workman.

Thx @rfernandez, but this solution don't work for me, but I have found my fault.

I not installed eggdbus, but ConsoleKit needs eggdbus.
