I had to admit I didn't tried purging, just removing and installing
again. But I did the purge as well after you mentioned it. Nothing
works still though. And weird thing I get NO error under
.xsession-errors (I've moved old one somewhere else and created new
one, and after wdm gets back to login nothing shows up under
.xsession-errors). So somehow I'm unable to get an Xsession from wdm,
I checked /etc/X11/wdm/Xstartup, and it was checking for /usr/bin/X11/xmessage,
so I changed that for /usr/bin/xmessage, but that didn't change a
thing either. So I'm kind of lost, there's must be a unconnected link
somewhere, but I can figure out where. For now I'm removing wdm to
avoid it at boot...

I tried XDM, and XDM is working fine. So this must be an exclusive
WDM issue then. The work around is to use XDM then, :-(.
