Description Martin 2013-09-20 12:10:39 EDT
Description of problem:
GDM blended screen and input with VT

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

How reproducible:
always, sometimes need to restart GDM twice
in virt-manager

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to VT
2. run: systemctl restart gdm.service
3. after gdm restarts switch back to VT
4. use keyboard and mouse

Actual results:
You can't switch from GDM to VT or if you switch you'll get VT with GDM overlay on screen, both responding to keyboard input.

Expected results:
You can switch from X to VT.

Additional info:
tested with QXL/Spice and VNC/Cirrus

Why is this a systemd bug? Wouldn't it be more a X or kernel bug?
Comment 3 Martin 2013-10-15 09:17:23 EDT
Because of possible relation to former ConsoleKit functionality. I can reproduce it with various driver/protocol combinations.
Comment 4 Lukáš Nykrýn 2013-10-17 05:40:05 EDT
This really sounds to me as an issue in VT switching in kernel. Reassigning to get their opinion.

Still reproducible with RHEL7 Beta. Adding screenshot to get more attention.

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Martin is no longer with RedHat I would propose close this bug and reopen if needed.
