Description jay dwyer 2005-12-07 06:27:33 EST
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:
I've installed fedora ds, can access via ldap tools and through the html admin interface, but when i fire up the ./startconsole java app using sun java 5, it goes nowhere.

JAVA_HOME=/path/to/java/1.5/jre ./startconsole -a http://localhost:3389

the splash screen pops up, but the login screen does not appear.

firing it up with java 1.4.2 works.

i have the sun java packages installed following the jpackage nominated procedures for 1.4.2_07 and 1.5.0_03

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set JAVA_HOME to the <jdk1.5_home>/jre
2. fire up the console with ./startconsole
3. go nowhere

Actual Results:  splash screen pops up, the message is 'please log in...', but the login screen is not visible

Expected Results:  the login screen should have been visible

Yeah, unfortunately there is a window ordering problem - the logo/splash screen
is on top of the login screen.  Try this: ./startconsole -x nologo
Comment 2 jay dwyer 2005-12-07 16:58:24 EST
makes sense,

might check out the source and see if i cant provide a patch..

maybe a note somewhere about only jre 1.4.2 at this stage?


Comment 3 Rich Megginson 2005-12-07 17:06:05 EST
I think jre 1.5 will work fine if you use
./startconsole -x nologo
We'll add this to the FAQ

If you are a Java programmer, please take a look at

I log into the server via ssh -X and I had the problem of the window being
invisible. Using another X server, In this case X Darwin would normally only
show the logo. Fixed this with and -nolog option and found that the main window
was nearly off the screen. Pulled it back and all was well

These changes ensure that the login dialog is placed on top of the splash
screen in both Java 1.4 and 1.5.
