Description Paolo Bonzini 2011-01-23 23:55:19 EST
Description of problem: If a user didn't fill in his real name in /etc/passwd, their entry in gdm shows up as blank. gdm should default to the login name. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.91.4-5 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a new user with useradd 2. Start graphical login. 3. Actual results: The new user's entry is blank. Expected results: The new user's entry shows the login name as it did in F14 and earlier.

I'm seeing the same thing, but I suspect it might be related to using SSSD (krb and ldap) for using auth and identification. gdm-2.91.91-1.fc15.x86_64 sssd-1.5.1-8.fc15.x86_64
Comment 2 Michal Schmidt 2011-03-01 11:08:05 EST
No. This is perfectly reproducible without SSSD. Simply have an empty GECOS field in /etc/passwd.

Proposing this as a final release blocker (and Beta NTH). We don't have any release criteria that cover this use case, but this seems like a somewhat public/high_profile area which we would want to address.
Comment 5 Jared Smith 2011-03-07 15:51:59 EST
I agree with making this a release blocker and Beta nice-to-have.
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2011-03-11 14:14:00 EST
Discussed at 2011-03-11 blocker review meeting. We decided we can't really make a convincing case for this being a final blocker; if someone wants to re-propose it and make such a case, please do. For now, accepted as NTH for Beta and Final.

appears to be fixed upstream
Comment 8 Michal Schmidt 2011-04-02 16:11:29 EDT
The upstream fix reached Fedora. gdm shows login names as expected.
