So did something stupid - I updated world some days ago without restarting then updated world again yesterday, shut off the box, and went home. (this is my office box)

So this morning, X would not start - I arrived at the conole login. The only log file that gets updated with something is sddm. Xorg.0.log isnt touched, so it seams that it fails prior to X.

Retyping this sddm.log from a windows box;

Initializing...
Console kit interface found
QDBusConnection: error: could not send message to service "org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" interface "/org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager" member "ListSeats": Invalid interface class: /org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager
Starting...


Now, I am totally the worst on consolekit and friends - dont know what to look for...

Any help appreciated! :oops:
