Re: Can't login anymore since an update

Hello group,

Since I did an update of my Debian Etch system, I cannot login with my
normal user. root was not allowed to login through gdm so I modified
it to let root login. root works fine with gdm and startx. As a test,
I create a user and tried to log with this user through gdm and startx.
This test user login without problem again through gdm and startx.

With my normal and common user, I cannot log anymore. I tried with gdm
and startx without success.

I found a lot of error in .xsession-errors. I copied it in the mail in
the hope someone may find the problem.
