Yesterday I updated my Arch with `pacman -Syu`. After reboot all gone fine until GDM load. From now on I get background briefly displayed and after 1 second or so I get a screen with:
Oh no! Something has gone wrong.
A problem has occured and the system can't recover. Please contact a system administrator.
...and a picture of a monitor with sad emotion
Not too informative.
I've looked syslog, messages, dmesg, gdm logs and found nothing special in them. Trying to `rc.d stop gdm` spawns it again with same symphtoms.
I have ThinkPad E420 (Intel graphics) if it matters.
Where should I look to narrow down the problem? Thanks in advance.
Omg, got it!
I've fount something like:
JS ERROR: !!! Exception was: Error: Argument 'text' (type utf8) may not be null JS ERROR: !!! lineNumber = '0' JS ERROR: !!! fileName = '"gjs_throw"' JS ERROR: !!! stack = '"("Argument 'text' (type utf8) may not be null")@gjs_throw:0 ()@/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/dateMenu.js:212
in /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log and after few tries and errors I deduced the problem to a line in /etc/locale.conf
I commented it out and voi-la, gnome started as usual. Crazy, crazy day…
Now the question is still open. Have anybody ideas how could ever such thing stop GDM and Gnome from starting?! How could I return back my local date/time format?
This is a shot in the dark, but are you sure you've uncommented the entry for ru_RU.UTF-8 in /etc/locale.gen and re-run locale-gen?

Sure. Futhermore I have:
In locale.conf and it works as expected. The problem is in LC_TIME.
Sounds like an upstream bug to me, post in the related bug tracker (probably for gnome-shell).
