Re: Gnome: can't login
I thought I've seen the very same problem on this list before,
but can't find it browsing the archives.
After setting up the dial-in box, and getting used to bash, I
now went on with installing woody on my secondary office machine.
Everything worked fine, until Gnome started and presented its
own login window. I can't login there.

I'd like to point out that I mostly followed the standard
installation procedure. I chose "desktop environment" in
tasksel, then picked Emacs in dselect, and threw KDE
overboard (by kicking a random deb that had KDE in its name,
as well as anything it depended on).
After that, I worked through the different scripts the installation
process presented me. At some time, X (Gnome) started and
that's where I'm stuck now.
I can't imagine how or where I've messed things up.
I also don't know how or where to fix it.
maybe this will help:
