Ran a emerge -NDuva world, updated a bunch of gnome stuff.
gnome-base/gnome-2.10-r1 and deps and
gnome-base/gdm-2.6.0.9-r2

Launching et (enemey territory) gives (in /var/log/messages)
Jul 26 22:58:13 dsotm gdm[23200]: PAM unable to 
dlopen(/lib/security/pam_console.so)

gdm restarts .... no game

I've tried commenting out all of
dsotm ~ # grep console /etc/pam.d/*
/etc/pam.d/gdm:session optional /lib/security/pam_console.so
/etc/pam.d/gdm-autologin:session optional /lib/security/pam_console.so
/etc/pam.d/xdm:session optional pam_console.so
/etc/pam.d/xserver:# Next line you need console ownership to be able to 
start X
/etc/pam.d/xserver:#auth required pam_console.so

restarting gdm, even rebooting, same error as above.

tried setting USE="pam_console" emerge -Nva pam ... adding the login 
pam_console, uncommenting all of the above lines, i just get the
Jul 26 22:41:05 dsotm gdm[8000]: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X 
error - Restarting :0


i'm almost ready to USE="-pam" emerge -e world ...
