Oh another bug, this keeps getting better and better... You can't use startx or xinit to open a second session any more...
*starts looking for another distro*
EDIT: Another user is having the same problem with startx, in fact, https://bbs.archlinu...forum.php?id=23
Look at the bugs the new gnome update has caused! TESTING and STABLE? I think not, more like SHOULDPROBABLYTEST and CANTBEARSEDTOTEST....

So you don't use sound nor do you use another X11 session? Well that's great, thanks for the useful insight to these problems...
I'm an Arch Linux user and this change was no problem for me. Sounds like Arch is not for you; go use ubuntu.

Arch Linux is really turning to ****. Almost every time I do a system update, it completely breaks everything.
I tried reinstalling, and what happened? They made the install EVEN MORE DIFFICULT. Why the hell the removed the assisted GUI menu to install is beyond me but it's freaking retarded they would do that.

Sorry sir, but I have used Gentoo many times in the past and used Arch many times. In fact, my first Gentoo install was a stage 1 on a 1.7ghz P4. It took 3 days of compiling to get to a usable desktop environment. The thing is, it's pretty dumb to have a regression in the difficulty of installing your distribution.
if something like arch or Gentoo is too hard for you then your probably more suited to use one of the noobuntu flavours.
