Description Warren Togami 2004-09-18 23:56:13 EDT
Description of problem:
XDMCP connections to gdm x86_64 segfault.  I do not know how to attach
gdb to this because the instance of gdm-binary is launched with each
XDMCP connection.  Since it has no tty, it outputs to dmesg:

gdm-binary[18655]: segfault at 0000005596fc0570 rip 0000005596fc0570
rsp 0000007fbffff1e8 error 14

I have been unable to rebuild gdm due to Bug #132903, but it seems
judging by the changelog that the latest upstream version does
not solve any problem like this.

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

I am having the same problem on 386 architecture with "kdm". Using 
strace I found that if I have a x-terminal definition in /etc/X11/Xservers 
than kdm crashes. If I comment this line it does not. Is this similar or not. 
Plus, I am not sure where the problem is because KDE 3.2.3 kdm works 
Comment 2 Sammy 2004-09-21 08:49:46 EDT
My problem was kdm related and has been fixed in the KDE_3_3_BRANCH. 
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-09-22 22:48:15 EDT
Seems fixed in September 22nd rawhide.
