xdm is working OK. At the xdm prompt I can login as root but not as normal
user. I mean, xdm accepts the password for all users, but for a
normal user, after accepting it, xdm is restarted. It's the same if I
login in text mode:

$ startx

There's no problem if I do it as root, but when I do it as normal user, X
doesn't starts up.

It's what I have found but I don't have any other message in logs. I
thought it was a problem with permissions but I've looked for some missed
SUID or SGID but nothing seems to be wrong.

Any hint?

Thanks in advance.
