Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-24 11:16:34 EDT
One problem that we're hitting with pam_gnomekeyring is that it runs in the
locked down xdm context since we don't do a domain transition until after pam
session modules are run.  This causes problems because it means
gnome-keyring-daemon runs under the wrong context.

Some session modules (like pam_console) need to run under the xdm domain and not
the user domain though.

If we switch to using pam_selinux then we can partition the session modules to
half run in the xdm context and half in the user context.
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-24 11:34:31 EDT
should be fixed (or really broken) in tomorrow's rawhide
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-09-07 12:08:46 EDT
it broke things for xguest users.  we need to save, reset and restore the
context around the call to the PreSession script
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-10-01 17:23:26 EDT
we fixed this a while ago I believe.
