Description Adam Pribyl 2005-06-26 16:36:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511

Description of problem:
Installation of xlockmore was fine, there is /etc/pam.d/xlock file with
auth       required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password   required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth

but the result of login try is like this:

Error sending status request (Operation not permitted)
Error sending status request (Operation not permitted)
failed unlock attempt on user covex

I could be probably solved by suid root... but its workaround.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xlockmore
2. start X11
3. start xlock

Actual Results:  invalid login with valid password

Expected Results:  unlocked screen

I can confirm this bug as it also happens for me. With xlockmore-5.16-1,
however, this doesn't happen for me. Can you confirm that it works with the
older version also for you?
Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2005-06-27 03:59:34 EDT
I just have tested that chmod u+s /usr/bin/xlock doesn't work.

Can you try to rebuild http://lisas.de/~adrian/rpm/xlockmore-5.18-3.fc4.src.rpm
and see if it fixes your problem. It does fix it for me.
Comment 3 Adam Pribyl 2005-06-27 17:14:40 EDT
I am still getting these messages, but I can unlock the screen, so it fixes.
Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2005-06-28 02:36:31 EDT
I am closing it and requesting a build. Should be available in the next days.
