Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 152320
no xauth entry for non-UNIX domain socket display
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
Description of problem:
When entering a gnome session, there is an xauth entry added for the local
display. However, the only display that is set is "host/unix:0". If I want to
allow remote computers to access my display (and I do), I need to add the xauth
key for the display named "host:0". The other info is the same, but currently
have to manually edit the xauth line to remove the "/unix".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into a gnome session.
2. In a terminal, execute 'xauth list :0' to see all keys for the local display.
The only matching entry is something like this:
host/unix:0 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 ba0935474cbbe13d2ec448c1e0ca5b51
There should be (at least) an entry that looks like this:
host:0 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 ba0935474cbbe13d2ec448c1e0ca5b51
(note the lack of "/unix")
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.
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
