Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1284319
dash cannot be used
Last modified: 2016-07-19 15:22:40 EDT
Description of problem:
simply put using dash as a login shell will not work as-is.
The problem is made clear when you trace the xsession-errors file. scl_init fails and therefore X11 fails to init as well, and throws you out, slamming the door behind you.
YOU MAY NOT LOGIN. Every attempt fails.
It boils down to unportable code in the init file:
which cannot be processed by dash as-is.
Dash is the recommended shell these days.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
only on chsh (nice util nobody knows about) or via 'users and groups' app. I Needed to reboot to enable security patches and such and whammo....no X for ewe.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.change login shell via means above.
2.logout and back in or reboot
3. fix via console and reboot (I would say startx but root for some reason has a predefined login of gnome3, and its obviously not installed on this setup.Users cannot generally startx. Working on solution to change session via console but I forgot how to do that.)
no X for ewe
this should not be an issue
