Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179249
Access Control Enabled by default in FC4
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
I have set up a service in Fedora Core to allow me to graphically log in via VNC
(as per the directions in section 4 of
FC3 this worked fine, but in FC4 it seems that (X-Windows) access control is on
by default when I log in, so I cannot access many tools from the menu (such as
DNS configuration). When I try to run them from a shell some work, some don't,
but they all report X-Windows errors. If I enter "xhost +" then everything works
fine again. I can also enter "xhost +localhost" to fix the problem.
Is this expected in FC4 (and not FC3)? Is there a way to disable access control
on startup (or add localhost to the access control list)?
