[SOLVED] GDM failes to start and dbus says "Rejected send message"

Hi,

I just installed Arch on my new laptop, but gdm doesn't start. The boot process ends with the message

[OK] Reached target Graphical Interface

but nothing happens.

When I ask systemctl for the status of the gdm service I get

dgm-binary[297]: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.04 seconds
gdm-simple-slave[328]: WARNING: Child process 330 was already dead
WARNING GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X Server log for errors

And the status of dbus reads

[system] Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method call", sender=":1,2" (uid=0 pid=297 comm"=/u.../org/gn")

May this be related to the fact that I had to set

radeon.modeset=0

in my boot-loader to prevent the screen from going blank?

My last guess was not the problem. I installed the propetarian driver and removed the "radeon.modeset=0" line. Still same problem.

And another thing: If I try to start X.org with "startx" I get the error: "no screens found"

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI

This sounds like a video driver set up issue. Not gdm. I would suggest working throught the wiki.
