Description Michael Wardle 2003-02-25 15:01:26 UTC
Description of problem: When selecting a Default or GNOME session login from gdm and logging in as a normal user, the Red Hat GNOME splash screen appears, but no progress is made for over a minute. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-desktop-126.96.36.199-3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Perform fresh install of Red Hat Linux 8.0.94 2. Create a user account 3. Start GDM (or enter runlevel 5) 4. Leave the Default session type selected (or select GNOME) 5. Enter the user's username and password Actual results: A blue splash screen appears with the Red Hat logo, then nothing happens. Expected results: Icons appear along the bottom of the splash screen to indicate progress. Additional info: This happened on a clean install of Red Hat Linux 8.0.94 (phoebe-3). I chose to install GNOME and KDE. I have tried rebooting, but to no avail. No errors appear either on the screen or in .xsession-errors, nor when starting "gnome-session" in the xterm provided by a Failsafe X session. .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome, .gnome2, .gnome2_private directories are created in the user's home directory. KDE is also installed. When selecting the KDE session, KDE works fine. Networking is correctly configured, and the host's host name can be resolved (using DNS).

After another reboot, the problem no longer exhibits itself.
