Description Matthew Miller 2007-06-11 21:00:27 UTC
Description of problem: Starting multiple servers no longer seems to work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gdm-2.19.2-1.fc8 (may have started sooner, but not too long ago) How reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put 1=Standard in the [servers] section of /etc/gdm/custom.conf 2. restart Actual results: Just one X server and gdm greeter on virtual console 7. Expected results: One X server and gdm greeter on vc7 and one on vc8. (By default, of course.) Additional info: This has worked for years -- fast user switch before anyone else had it. But now it suddenly stopped working.

I have the same observation using the gdm-2.19.4-1.fc8, but it's enough to replace just the gdm-binary from the gdm-2.18.0-9.fc7 package and it works again.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2007-07-25 22:53:28 UTC
As a workaround, I ended up doing this: [servers] 0=A 1=B [server-A] name=Desktop A command=/usr/bin/X :0 -br -audit 0 vt7 flexible=true [server-B] name=Desktop B command=/usr/bin/X :1 -br -audit 0 vt8 flexible=true Which works fine.
Comment 3 Damian Wrobel 2007-11-12 21:57:55 UTC
The aforementioned workaround, as given in comment #2, stopped to working after upgrade to gdm-2.21.2-0.2007.11.09.1.fc9.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2008-03-08 01:42:13 UTC
Yeah, so, uh, any word from gdm developers about this? It's a pretty major regression.
Comment 5 Matthew Miller 2008-04-22 02:43:38 UTC
This still fails with gdm-2.21.10-0.2008.04.11.3.fc9 in Rawhide.
