Description Matthias Clasen 2008-07-12 13:30:53 EDT
Every so often, I end up with a black background on the login screen after booting. Is there some race condition that makes setting the background not work reliably ?
Comment 1 Tom London 2008-07-16 10:34:18 EDT
I see this more often: I get a black screen most of the time, with a "pretty background" about 1 in 10 or so. In addition, the size of the window listing login names (and the one with the password prompt) varies in width: sometimes it is "comfortably wide" allowing for the circles as I enter my 28 character pass phrase, and sometimes it is "skinny", allowing for only about 15 or so such circles.

The 'wide' gdm login screens show a 'suspend' button, the 'narrow' ones do not. Not sure why this would change on different logins to the same machine.... I'll attach below 3 photos of login screen for same system: First: nice background, wide login screen. Second: no background, wide login screen. Third: no background, narrow login screen (no suspend button). In terms of probability of occurrence: the first is about 10%, the second and third occur about 45% each.

Getting backgrounds now with gdm-2.23.1-0.2008.07.21.3.fc10.i386. Still have issue with sometimes "narrow" (i.e., no "suspend" button), sometimes "wide" (i.e., with "suspend" button).
Comment 7 Tom London 2008-08-06 09:27:35 EDT
With gdm-2.23.2-1.fc10.i386 I get background, but still have problem with "narrow"/"wide" randomness....
Comment 8 jmccann 2008-08-20 12:15:18 EDT
The background problem should be fixed now, as should the width. The suspend button not showing up is a race that I'll fix by twiddling the startup order of the desktop files. This should show up in rawhide soon. Marking fixed.
Comment 9 Tom London 2008-09-04 13:55:12 EDT
I'm seeing this again with today's rawhide updates. Not exactly sure which package caused this. This known?

Created attachment 315789 [details] /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log for session with "black background"
Comment 11 Tom London 2008-09-04 22:46:31 EDT
Updating to gnome-desktop-2.23.91-4.fc10.i386 (and friends) fixed this. Sorry for the noise.
