Failed to load gdm-shell after installing xfce
Last modified: 2011-11-01 10:45:50 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing xfce from live spin, window pops up saying "Failed to load session gdm-shell" after firstboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F16 RC3 xfce live spin x86_64, default installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F16 RC3 from xfce live spin
gdm-shell fails to load.
gdm-shell loads successfully.
gdm version: 188.8.131.52-5.fc16
xfwm4 version: 4.8.1-5.fc16
This is a bug in gdm. If gdm really needs metacity, it needs to be fixed in the gdm package. we can only fix it for the Xfce spin.
