Last night I installed NetBSD 2.0.2 on my Sun Ultra 1 and then
installed Gnome from Binaries provided by Havard Eidnes (thanks BTW) :)
I had not made any additional user accounts on my machine yet when I
did this. After the install completed, I then proceeded to edit /usr/
pkg/etc/gdm.conf to remove all references to 'vt05' as that makes gdm
not work. I ran gdm and logged in successfully as root and had a nice
Gnome desktop. I rebooted the machine, created a user account for
myself, and once that was complete I ran gdm. The Login Window came
up fine, and then I logged in as my new user account and got a Gnome
Session Manager Segfault. I was obviously unable to log in. I
decided to try again as root, since the root account had already
worked once, but now it also had a Segfault error in Gnome Session
manager. I am unsure as to why this would happen, there were no
other changes made other than that I made a new user account.
Has anyone else experienced this or something similar and/or know how
to fix this problem?
