Update to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 = no login

Hi,

I didn't see anything about it, so I don't know whether it's me or whether I should make a bugzilla. Updating to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 leaves me with a sandclock and no login chooser. I have to downgrade to 3.1.90 to be able to login again. Probably important also, I'm using the XFCE spin. Somebody have some hints?

Klaus

I have the same issue with the xfce spin.

Just curious, does changing the login manger help?

Is this not the same as our discussion at "Thread: [SOLVED] display manager failed" ?

Re: Update to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 = no login

Hi, the latest I can get is systemd-35-1.. No, I don't think it's the same thing as in the above mentioned thread, as I don't even get a login screen. Just a sandclock. Downgrading gdm is the only thing helping here...

I don't think so
Code:
[leigh@main-pc ~]$ rpm -qa *\systemd\*
systemd-36-3.fc16.x86_64
systemd-sysv-36-3.fc16.x86_64
systemd-units-36-3.fc16.x86_64
[leigh@main-pc ~]$

Re: Update to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 = no login

sounds like a gdm/xfce interaction issue, file it against gdm if it isn't filed already.

Re: Update to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 = no login

i have the latest systemd 36-4 and i can login to xfce fine but not Gnome as it crashes. weird thing is it loaded fine for me yesterday after installing KDE but it still refuses to log me in to the shell . i did see someone on irc mentioning the exact same issue i was getting, xsession errors? i dunno how to pull those up to attach to a bug report

I believe this is the same issue

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=741770


I have decided to use lxdm as it looks a better match for xfce.


Code:
su
yum erase gdm
yum install lxdm

just took a look at my dmesg an turns out i get the exact same problem, this is the line i see in dmesg also
Code:
  [drm:drm_debugfs_create_files] *ERROR* Cannot create
/sys/kernel/debug/dri/channel\xffffffff/4
maybe this is whats causing my crash's Adam?

Re: Update to 1:gdm-3.1.92-1.fc16.i686 = no login

i just updated to Gnome 3.2.0 and the problem is still there. this has to be more of a Kernel issue than anything else . if leigh is/was using the blob Nvidia driver and im using Nouveau surely its kernel not Gnome pacific

---------- Post added at 05:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:24 PM ----------

as soon as RC9 kernel gets made i'll try it. hopefully its out when im asleep. anyone tried RC7 kernel?

erm...how do you figure this has anything to do with the kernel or graphics drivers? it just sounds like changes to gdm didn't take into account how it works with non-GNOME desktops.

what else could it be ? but Adam, i get the crash even when trying to log into Gnome itself. but once im logged into say KDE or XFCE for an hour or so and try to log into Gnome it will log into Gnome about 97% of the time. , im only having a guess here what the problem could be. .
