Today, I got e17 up and running again after rebuilding my system. As always, I love E. Fast, Simple FAST.
My system is RHEL 4.4.
For testing purposes, I initially configured e from the command line, and installed entrance and changed my init level to 5 after I was satisfied with my setup.
I use the default display manager (gdm) and e works fine.
So now I'm trying to get entrance to work. . .
Here's my problem. I can logon through the entrance interface as root, but I can't logon through my user account. I enter my user name and password but logon fails and returns to entrance. I can't logon to any window manager (kde, gnome, failsafe)as a normal user when entrance is used.
I invoke entrance via the following line in inittab: x:5:respawn:/usr/local/sbin/entranced -nodaemon
I have removed .Xclients and .Xclients-default from the home directory, but no change.
If I remember correctly, http://www.atmos.org had a very nice configuration guide for entrance, but the server seems to be down.
I know this isn't an e or entrance problem, it's a configuration problem, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
