Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106860
Problem causing gdmgreeter to crash
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:19 EDT
Description of problem:
At one point after 0.81 this package made gdmgreeter crash for me. This only
happens in the no_NO locale so it could be related to the translation in some
way, but I've checked the file and it seems sane. I'll try again with an updated
translation from CVS to see if that helps.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
What version of gdm? Latest?
Yes, this is the latest release. Going back to redhat-artwork-0.81 fixes it, and
it breaks with both 0.83 and 0.84.
Oh, and I thought it could be related to some bug in the translation of
redhat-artwork so I copied over the swedish translation since it works if I run
with swedish as the default locale, but it still failed, so that's not it either.
The strange thing is that if I run gdmXnest and then DISPLAY=:20 gdmgreeter it
works in norwegian.
Really strange. The gdm theme shouldn't have changed between 0.81 and 0.83 that
i can tell.
No, it seems related to something else and s/no_NO.UTF-8/sv_SE.UTF-8/g in
/etc/sysconfig/i18n "fixes" it, so maybe it's something else that's broken with
the norwegian locale in general? Or maybe just a coincidence
It could be that the norwegian translation triggers a bug in gdmgreeter. Did the
translation change from 0.81 to 0.83?
Oh, its not the translation (i reread your earlier comment).
Strange. I dunno what could cause it then.
