Description Scott Tsai 2006-03-10 12:10:56 UTC
Description of problem:
When editing a profile, leave the Xnest session idle for a few minutes and the
screensaver will run inside Xnest and ask for the password of 'sabayon-admin',
which the user does not know.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sabayon-2.12.3-2

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open sabayon
2. edit a profile
3. leave idle Xnest session for a while
  
Actual results:
screensaver asks for sabayon-admin password.

Expected results:
no screensaver

Additional info:
Suggest disabling screensaver for sabayon profile editing sessions.

Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2006-03-10 12:39:53 UTC
Hmm, we added this to prevent it:

      # Disable Xscreensaver locking
      new_environ["RUNNING_UNDER_GDM"] = "yes"

Maybe gnome-screensaver doesn't support that?


Comment 2 Scott Tsai 2006-03-10 14:22:26 UTC
Inside the Xnest session:
  $ echo $RUNNING_UNDER_GDM
  yes

package:
gnome-screensaver-2.13.92-2

So apparently gnome-screensaver does not support it.
By the way, do you really like the name 'RUNNING_UNDER_GDM'?

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2006-05-29 14:47:35 UTC
Created attachment 130193 [details]
gnome-screensaver-running-under-gdm.patch

Problem is that gnome-screensaver isn't passing the RUNNING_UNDER_GDM env
variable to gnome-screenaver dialog. Attaching a fix

Turns out this is already fixed upstream

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2006-05-29 14:51:39 UTC
Ray: might be nice to do an FC5 update but it's not a huge deal, so feel free to
close as fixed in rawhide
