Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1301263
TimedLogin option is not working in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
Last modified: 2016-11-04 02:40:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Auto login of user with TimedLogin options of gdm does not work after upgrade from RHEL7.1 to RHEL7.2
Problem is observed when dconf key /org/gnome/login-screen/disable-user-list is set to true
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add below entries in /etc/gdm/custom.conf file for auto login of user.
2. Disable user list to configure banner message on gdm login screen.
# cat /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/01-custom-gdm-settings
banner-message-text='Corporate banner message text'
# dconf update
Auto login of user configured with TimedLogin option does not work
User configured for TimedLogin should automatically get logged in to the session. After logout from the session same user should automatically get logged in after the time configured in TimedLoginDelay is elapsed.
This was working well in rhel7.1 with gdm-3.8.4-32.el7.x86_64
Problem is introduced in rhel7.2 after re-base to gdm-3.14
Re-enabling user list is a workaround which does work to get timed login working on rhel7.2 But banner message configuration is not possible with this.
should be set, marking MODIFIED
Any extra information? Release date for the RHBA?
Timed log in is working on gnome-shell-3.14.4-52.el7 and gdm-3.14.2-18.el7.
