I'm not sure what I did. I found a few threads on the internet, but I haven't figured out why sddm can't get permission from pam...

Here is the tail of /var/log/messages:

Code:
May 28 05:10:20 server start-stop-daemon[30896]: Will stop /usr/bin/sddm
May 28 05:10:20 server /etc/init.d/xdm[30896]: start-stop-daemon: no matching processes found

May 28 05:10:24 server console-kit-daemon[4975]: CRITICAL: polkit_authority_check_authorization: assertion 'POLKIT_IS_AUTHORITY (authority)' failed


I think I messed this up by hand editing the passwd file... I'm pretty sure I fixed that, but I still can't get sddm to start. X starts, I get a cursor, but that's it...

Halp?


Update: I compared the system to a working system and added some startup scripts. I believe the one that fixed it was lvm.

However, for people who are trying to get it to work: here is the scripts installed on the system

Code:
rc-status

Clearly network manager is going to need some work...
