??? Xsession: Login for someuser is disabled.

I just setup a Suse 9.1 system on an NIS network and logins from the terminal work just fine, but when I try a graphical login for a user other than root, it fails with that error (root can do a graphical login without any problems). Also, ssh logins work fine for users other than root too, so I'm pretty sure it is not a password or NIS/ypbind issue.

I assume this is a kdm setup issue, but I cannot find the right setting. Any ideas?

Here's another (old, but possibly relevant):

Anyway it looks like LDAP and/or Active Directory configuration might be the culprits here...

??? Xsession: Login for someuser is disabled.

The error can be written by /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession (Suse 10) if Xsession thinks that a "normal login" is disabled.
I found this to be the case for a NIS user whose shell was not listed in /etc/shells (e.g. /usr/local/bin/bash). Editing /etc/shells accordingly fixed the problem.
