Description Tim Waugh 2004-03-25 06:31:21 EST
Description of problem:
The gdmsetup autologin drop-down userlist includes nfsnobody, but

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-16 12:55:10 EDT
This is still the case with gdm- The reason is that
nfsnobody's UID is 65534 which doesn't get filtered by MinimalUID=500
in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf.

Maybe we should hardcode "&& pwent->pw_uid < 65534 " into
gui/gdmsetup.c:508 or try to introduce a new option MaximalUID upstream?
Comment 2 Colin Charles 2004-05-07 14:43:14 EDT
Still reproducable in gdm-

This minimal fix works for me.

Thanks for the patch Tim. We'll figure this one out upstream:
