Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186530
Unlock dialog box never appears if network auth is enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
With ldaps network auth enabled, I never see the unlock dialog box after the
gnome-screensaver kicks in and locks my desktop. The screen saver stops and I
see the mouse pointer, but never the unlock dialog. Dropping to a vt and looking
at ps output shows its running though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I think that the problem is related to the bug 186444 . Setting options that add
butons or other things to screen savers cause that unlock dialog never show with
default screen saver (Floating Fedora Bubbles)
Hm, interesting. I do get the Fedora-themed unlock dialog with the Floating
Fedora Bubbles screen saver on boxes I don't have network auth configured on.
Not sure if the two issues are directly related or just two very similar
issues... I'll try to beat on this more next week.
Looks like in rawhide we scrapped the themed unlock dialog box. Was that to
circumvent this issue or for other reasons? In any case, I can't reproduce with
rawhide, but this still happens on a fully-updated (with updates-testing
enabled) FC5 box with the themed unlock dialog, and enabling ldaps auth
definitely triggers the problem.
Not sure why I never saw this report fly by, but we haven't used the theme
dialog for some time now, so I'm going to close this one out.
The themed dialog was a bit of a failed experiment.
