Nothing that I can see. If you see the earlier thred under Dapper
post-installation problem, I have detailed everything that has happened.

Here is ~/.xsession-errors :

/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/sessreg -a -w
/var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/lib/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l
":0" "mas"
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...

ALSA lib pcm.c:2099:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default

This is tied to my comment of alsa not being started. 

Regarding /var/log/Xorg.log, the error message _seems_ to be :

   error opening security policy file /etc/xserver/SecurityPolicy

Thanks and regards,

Your motives for doing whatever good deed you may have in mind will be
misinterpreted by somebody.
