Default slim (simple login manager)

slim started up fine when this machine was running Fedora 14.* I installed it from for Fedora 15:

slim-1.3.2-8.fc15.x86_64

It doesn't start any more.* I get this in /var/log/slim.log:

slim: unexpected signal 15
sh: /usr/bin/xauth: Permission denied

I'm trying to launch slim by changing my /etc/sysconfig/desktop from:

DESKTOP="KDE"
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"

to:

DESKTOP="OPENBOX"
DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/bin/slim-dynwm

How do I fix this?

John

Check the permission of /usr/bin/xauth.
They will be probably ok, so next move will be blaming selinux.

Looks to me like selinux. I would check your labeling on xaut ahd
maybe on slim.

Thank you for taking an interest.

I don't know what could be wrong with /usr/bin/xauth since KDM works fine.* I see nothing in /var/log/messages from SElinux (except something related to wine).

What permissions should I be looking for?

$ ls -l --lcontext /usr/bin/xauth
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 system_ubject_r:xauth_exec_t:s0 root root 36840 Feb* 8* 2011 /usr/bin/xauth********************************************* ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************

$ ps -eZ | grep -i slim

yields nothing because slim is not running.

When I set my /etc/sysconfig/desktop to
DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/bin/slim-dynwm
DESKTOP=openbox

slim doesn't actually run, so issuing

$ ps -eZ | grep -i slim

yields nothing.

What else could I check?

Well can you logout of the X session and log in via a termanal or sshd
to see what it is running as.

I guess I don't understand. The start up process has stopped, systemd says something about 'waiting for plymouth graphical boot screen' to end and then stops. X is not running at this point. I can press ALT+CTRL+F2 to open another terminal session and log in to look at /var/log/messages, /var/log/slim.log, and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

I don't know if this helps, but I tried it again a few minutes ago and saw this in /var/log/messages:

Aug 31 13:17:24 badboy systemd[1]: prefdm.service holdoff time over, scheduling restart.

Thanks for helping me with this, Daniel.
