Description Ian 2007-10-09 08:35:37 EDT
Description of problem: If you setup NIS authentication by editing usual files
(/etc/yp.conf /etc/sysconfig/network /etc/nsswitch.conf) then logins using gdm fail

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure NIS
2. Attempt login using gdm
Actual results: syslog:pam_unix(gdm:auth): check pass; user unknown

Expected results: successful login

Additional info: There is a fix posted in bz#134393 which is to set
USENIS=yes in /etc/sysconfig/authconfig but gdm should really respect
settings in /etc/nsswitch.conf

Using kdm as login manager works OK.

If this prevents login, it is blocker material
Comment 2 Ian 2007-10-10 07:03:51 EDT
Did a fresh install with all current updates. gdm with NIS logins work fine now.
Changelog for gdm does not hint at a fix, so I can only assume I made a mistake
- please close this bug.
