Description:

When having this package installed gdm never starts and errors on:
systemd[1]: Started GNOME Display Manager.
gdm-launch-environment][757]: pam_succeed_if(gdm-launch-environment:auth): requirement "user = gdm" not met by user "gnome-initial-setup"

commenting out:
auth required pam_succeed_if.so audit quiet_success user = gdm
account required pam_succeed_if.so audit quiet_success user = gdm
session required pam_succeed_if.so audit quiet_success user = gdm
in file://etc/pam.d/gdm-launch-environment

results in:
systemd[1]: Starting GNOME Display Manager...
gdm[662]: Endast root-användaren kan köra GDM **(only root user can run GDM)**
systemd[1]: gdm.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

systemd[1]: Failed to start GNOME Display Manager.

This package is fundamentally broken and searching upstream bugs results in nothing and this is supposedly also working on Debian (according to a r/archlinux user)
This task depends upon

Is this issue still present?
if yes, can you provide an easy way (steps) to reproduce it?
thanks

Still present on 3.36.4-1, same exact logs.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Arch Linux
2. Don't create a new user or anything, just install gnome-shell package and gnome-initial-setup package
3. systemctl enable --now gdm.service

(Issue persists through reboot)
