 Well, I cannot say exactly what was the matter, but I rebuild and reinstalled 
Linux-PAM and especially Shadow with all the configurations according to the 
book and the problem was gone.

However: I need a little help. I get now a new short message after loging in, 
"Warning: Cannot open ConsoleKit session: 
Unable to open session: Unit console-kit-daemon.service failed to load. No 
such file or directory."

Unfortunately, I had already build consoleKit before. The daemon does not 
seems to be running, according to the  "strg-esc" list. But if I try to 
uninstall consolekit, the kdm-process does not run anymore, I only get the 
login and password promts. 

I think, I do not need to care very much about, is this correct ? But anyhow, 
I would like to supress the nasty  warning message. Any hints how can I 
perform this ?

Thank you very much
