Description of problem:

I've just installed fedora-22.3 (x86_64) and updated with 

# dnf update

Now I can't login after reboot. The system boots successfully, but when I try to login with it, I see gdm3 again and again. I can reproduce it only for the gnome x11 and gnome classic, Gnome on Wayland works perfectly and I can login with it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Version of gdm: GDM 3.16.2
System: a
Linux alex.fedora 4.0.4-301.fc22.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 21 13:10:33 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to authenticate with a user on GDM

GDM returns "Unable to authenticate user"

Expected results:

user logs in

Comment 1 Alexander Kuleshov 2015-07-30 09:48:45 EDT
Just tried to login with slim instead of gdm3, and login was successful. Seems that actual problem is in the gdm.
