I have just done some major system upgrade (I was pretty busy and haven't updated this machine for a while... probably ~1.5 month). And after reboot gdm refused to work properly. Looks like it's starting (I see blue stripes) but don't see login window, buttons, or anything else (only cursor). Fortunately I managed to run gnome manually (exec ck-launch-session ...).
Until now I was only using gnome in fallback mode and gdm simple greeter. If it matters I didn't even have gnome-shell installed on my system. Also just before system upgrade I was messing for a while around gnome themes, appearance, etc. I haven't touched gdm but I might have accidentally changed something in gconf-editor.
Unfortunately logs aren't much help for me this time.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Have you switched to systemd? If not, do so. If so, you don't need consolekit anymore.
Thanks. It worked.
