Description of problem:
On my rawhide system both gdmgreeter and gdmlogin
SEGV, and in both cases they SEGV immediately after the system call
access("/var/gdm/.fonts", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
I run the command "DOING_GDM_DEVELOPMENT=1 /usr/libexec/gdmgreeter" and get
the error message "Could not access GDM configuration file." while the only
unsuccessful file open that strace reports is for /usr/lib/charset.alias.
SE Linux is not the cause of the problem, it is in permissive mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I eventually did a reinstall of the machine and the bug went away. Not sure
if it was a configuration problem or a bug in some library. I'll open a new
report if it happens again.
