Like Giuseppe wrote, could you share your config.scm file?

What happens if you remove ‘xmonad’ from your profile?

Do you have a ~/.xsession file?  If so, could you share it?

I don’t see any reason off-hand while this would happen (Guix System
installations used SLiM in the past, and have been using GDM by default
for several months now.)

Indeed, ‘startx’ is currently not supported.
