Description Valdis Kletnieks 2015-12-17 14:07:17 EST
Description of problem:
With gnome-settings-daemon-3.19.3-1.fc24.x86_64 installed, the gdm login screen never shows up, instead gnome-shell dies with this in dmesg:

[ 2090.490726] traps: gnome-shell[6768] trap int3 ip:7f18a0986a8b sp:7ffd066f2d90 error:0
[ 2093.893838] traps: gnome-shell[6880] trap int3 ip:7fb6f31e8a8b sp:7ffdd3037970 error:0

[ 2106.284095] traps: gnome-shell[7191] trap int3 ip:7f65affb6a8b sp:7ffdbc32dd30 error:0

Unfortunately, ASLR means only the 'a8b' i the ip: has any persistent meaning.

Re-installing 3.18.2-1 made gnome-shell happy again.

Sorry, didn't get a core file of it.  Can probably do so if needed to debug this.

Probably not gnome-settings-daemon, but gsettings-desktop-schemas that changed a settings key in 3.19.3. gnome-shell 3.19.2 still uses the old settings key, which is a fatal error (unfortunately gnome-shell 3.19.3 was delayed due to an outstanding release of one of its dependencies, so it wasn't updated with gsettings-desktop-schemas/control-center).
The builds should be in the next rawhide compose

"D'Oh!" -- H. Simpson :)

Yeah, I had to roll gsettings-desktop-schemas and 4 other RPMs back to go back to the previous gnome-settings-daemon, and picked the wrong 1 out of 6. :)

Will report back once all the builds are updated, hopefully with a "yes it's fixed"....

If you don't want to wait, you can grab the latest rawhide builds for clutter, mutter and gnome-shell from koji.fedoraproject.org (and re-update the downgraded packages of course)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

This was fixed before F24 got released.
