Description Andrew 2005-10-07 17:53:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into X remotely
2. Start Sabayon
3. Try to edit a profile

Actual Results:  Traceback occurs, and I cannot edit any profiles.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/libexec/sabayon-session", line 48, in ?
    session.start ()
  File "/var/tmp/sabayon-0.18-1-root-machbuild/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/protosession.py", line 520, in start
  File "/var/tmp/sabayon-0.18-1-root-machbuild/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/protosession.py", line 320, in __start_xnest
  File "/var/tmp/sabayon-0.18-1-root-machbuild/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/protosession.py", line 254, in __write_temp_xauth_file
  File "/var/tmp/sabayon-0.18-1-root-machbuild/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/sabayon/protosession.py", line 235, in __get_xauth_record
sabayon.protosession.XauthParseError: 'xauth list' returned no records or records in unknown format

Expected Results:  I should be able to edit profiles remotely.

Additional info:

When I login locally, I can edit profiles without a traceback.

I am using Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) 4.1 to login remotely.

Sabayon is made to manage multiuser systems, and one common type is a terminal server where remote login is typical.

This should be fixed in 2.12.1.
