Hi all,

I have been using CDM as a display manager and have noticed some oddities. When I use consolekit, and tell CDM to register X session with it in /etc/cdmrc, my window manager (openbox or awesome) start up, but when I exit the computer freezes with the line:

cdm-xlaunch:Waiting for ConsoleKit to register X session

If I remove all the console kit stuff (preferred), I log in and select a WM, the WM does not start - it immediately brings me back to a login prompt. Then, if I login again and select a WM, it runs.

My /etc/cdmrc - I am remembering to change the consolkit part depending on whether I am tryin to use it or not
Code:
 
#!/bin/bash
#
# Example config file for cdm(1).
# Values set here is the default as in cdm(1).

# List of programs, commands with whitespaces should be quoted or escaped.
# If unset, all sessions in /etc/X11/Sessions or /usr/share/xsessions are
# offered as choices.
#
# (An example:)
binlist=(
   '~/.xsession-openbox'                    # Launch your X session,
   '~/.xsession-awesome'
   '/bin/zsh --login'              # or just execute your shell,
   '/usr/bin/fbterm'                # or start a frame buffer console,
#   '/usr/bin/cdm ~/.submenu.cdmrc'  # or go to a submenu :)
)

# List all program display names, one-by-one matched with $binlist.
# Names with whitespaces should be quoted or escaped.
#
# (Continued example:)
namelist=(OpenBox Awesome Console FBTerm)

# Type of the programs, one-by-one matched with $binlist.
# `C' for *C*onsole programs, which would be `exec'ed.
# `X' for *X* programs, which would be run with cdm-xlaunch(1).
#
# (Continued example:)
flaglist=(X X C C)

# Style for the cdm dialog, which is printed with dialog(1).
# Default to unset, causing dialog(1) to use the system wide default.
# See /usr/share/doc/cdm/themes for some nice choices.
dialogrc=

# Index of the first item in the menu.
countfrom=0

# Set default display.
display=0

# Where should the first X tty be spawned?
# special value `keep' causes to run X in current tty.
xtty=keep

# Should cdm(1) stick to the specified display?
locktty=no

# Use ConsoleKit for X session?
consolekit=yes

# Timeout for waiting for X session to register with ConsoleKit.
cktimeout=30

# Additional arguments to pass to X server, which is usually called as:
#   /usr/bin/X :$display "${serverargs[@]}" vt$((xtty+display))
# Arguments with whitespaces should be quoted or escaped.
serverargs=(-nolisten tcp)

# Alternative method of calling startx(/setsid). Should only be set if cdm
# does not start X as expected (bash -x shows call to setsid startx, but for
# no apparent reason does not start X).
# Only provided in the hope it may be useful, not a guaranteed fix.
altstartx=no


my .xsession-awesome - again, I alter it depending on if I use consolekit or not
Code:

udiskie &
#exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session awesome >> ~/.awesome_stdout 2>> ~/.awesome_stderr
exec dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session awesome >> ~/.awesome_stdout 2>> ~/.awesome_stderr


Ultimately, I would like to figure out why I have to login twice w/o consolekit, fix that, and dump consolekit all together. And no - I don't want to use systemd.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Figured it out -
removed all consolekit stuff, removed from default rc, changed /etc/cdmrc xtty=7 instead of xtty=keep, and all works as I expect w/o consolekit stuff.

#####EDIT 2############################3
Just rebooted with no changes and seeing the same behavior, so I guess I did not figure it out. I tried tail -f /var/log/messages in another tty, but it just says that a session is opened then closed by me. No errors or anything like that. If I erase my Xorg.log files, and try it, after the first login attempt, there are no files generated, meaning X is never starting. Running out of log file ideas. Any other suggestions?
