Description Brandon Clark 2020-05-07 23:06:46 UTC
Description of problem: GDM related keyfiles and directories are not found in /etc/dconf/db on fresh 8.2 install. This causes issues with doing things like adding a login banner. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dconf-0.28.0-3.el8.x86_64 How reproducible: Consistently Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install RHEL 8.2 2. Run 'ls -l' command on /etc/dconf/db Actual results: [test@localhost ~]$ ls -l /etc/dconf/db total 16 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 731 Nov 20 14:09 distro drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 40 Nov 20 13:34 distro.d -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 2931 May 20 2019 ibus drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 34 May 20 2019 ibus.d -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 790 Apr 29 12:23 local drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 92 Apr 29 12:26 local.d -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 104 May 20 2019 site drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 19 May 20 2019 site.d Expected results: /etc/dconf/db/gdm and /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d to be present as in RHEL 7.
Comment 1 Marek Kašík 2020-05-11 16:04:24 UTC
The directory is created by gdm in RHEL 7. It was added by bug #1664284. I'm reassigning this to gdm.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2020-05-11 17:24:04 UTC
Agreed, this is essentially the RHEL8 version of bug 1664284. One caveat is, in RHEL-8 we'll also need to modify the dconf profile to check for /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d, not just make the directory like in RHEL 7 (In RHEL 7 it was already in the profile)
Comment 9 Ray Strode [halfline] 2020-08-11 19:07:15 UTC
mboisvert found an issue during testing, doing a follow up build.
Comment 10 Michael Boisvert 2020-08-13 18:28:15 UTC
/etc/dconf/db/gdm and /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d are now present using gdm-3.28.3-32.el8.
