Heh... same thing happened to me. Here is what you need to do: cd into /usr/X11R6/etc/gdm. There you find your gdm.conf. After the cvsup, you have (or have a newer version of) factory-gdm.conf. A comparison showed wha'ts missing. Go ahead and edit gdm.conf. Search for "PostSessionScriptDir". You should see a path assigned to it. You should also see a definition of "PreSessionScriptDir". What you don't see is "PostLoginScriptDir". Go ahead and add to that section following line: PostLoginScriptDir=/usr/X11R6/etc/gdm/PostLogin/ Then restart gdm ("/usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d/gdm.sh stop" and "/usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d/gdm.sh start") and you should be good to go. Hope this helps, Frank
