[systemd-devel] Environment for prefdm.service

I am attempting to integrate a desktop environment with Fedora 15,
and it includes its own display manager.
It seems that prefdm.service always fails to start with it, and
multiple retries are logged in /var/log/audit and /var/log/messages .
However, running the bare command taken from prefdm.service always
seems to succeed without any trouble. If there is any useful log
information from this event, I don't know where to find it. (It
probably doesn't help that the prefdm script writes program output to
Is there any obvious difference in the runtime environments that
would cause this? The service fails both on boot and with `systemctl
restart prefdm.service` on a root shell, but `/etc/X11/prefdm
-nodaemon` works on the same shell.
It may be something wrong with the display manager, but I have not
yet been able to dive into learning systemd, either. I'm hoping if
it's something obvious on the systemd side, someone can point me in
the right direction before I go too far with this.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
