Description of problem:
After building a custom 2.6.9 kernel for fedora core 3, I now get a
message that gdmgreeter appears to be crashing and another greeter is
started instead.  Once the new greeter has started, if I go back to
runlevel 3 and do telinit 5, the gdmgreeter no longer crashes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.6.0.5-6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build vanilla 2.6.9 kernel on fedora 3
2.Boot new kernel
3.
    

Actual Results:  gdmgreeter crash message appears

Expected Results:  gdmgreeter should start cleanly

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
