Description Yang Zhao 2012-09-12 07:00:28 UTC
gdm-3.4.1's pam configs currently do not have a path that invokes on login. This causes nm-applet to be unable to communicate with NetworkManager under gnome-shell when USE=systemd is present, causing gnome-shell to panic.

/etc/pam.d/gdm needs to have

  -session  optional


  session  include  system-login

IIRC gdm-3.2.x is affected as well.

After some experimentation, it seems the proper file that needs the change is gdm-password.

I assume the same may need to be repeated for gdm-smartcard, gdm-autologin, and gdm-fingerprint.

Should be fixed in 3.4.1-r1, thanks for reporting.

Thanks for the quick turn-around.
