Since today, my gnome shell is crashing whenever I want to login from GDM. (I just get the mouse and the wallpaper, and after quite a long time, the "oh no, something has gone wrong - log out"
Starting it directly via startx does not help. Starting kde from Gdm is still workin (thats where Im writing the Email). Also, enabling the forced fallback mode doesnt work...
Any idea how to debug this? These is my .xsession-errors
Any help would be appreciated, Ive never had a problem like this...

Just found the solution (or more a workaround), after about 12 hours of searching and a complete system reinstall:
The problem occurs when enabling the NetworkManager with
$ sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager.service ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service' '/etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service' '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/NetworkManager.service'
The two services seem to conflict somehow, and the gnome session cannot start anymore. When removing the multi-user target
$ sudo rm '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/NetworkManager.service'
Everything works just fine, and I can login again!
