Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188463
gdmsetup does not retain timed username
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
Run gdmsetup and tick timed login, leave the timeout at 30 seconds, enter a
username (not picked from droplist) after restating gdm the timed login doesn't
occur and on re-running gdmsetup the username value has not been saved.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
couldn't evoke a vesion response from gdmsetup
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gdmsetup, enter timed username, exit
2. run gdmsetup again, value not retained
If I manually edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf
and add the following in the [daemon] section
then the timed login works fine
I can confirm this bug to still be present in FC6.
This seems a similar bug as for the untimed autologin (as in bug #193752)
I believe this bug got fixed upstream some time ago. If you're still
encountering the problem, feel free to reopen.
