gdm upgrade result in twm session
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading gdm with yum i cannot login in my normal gnome session. Logging
in results in a default twm session.
Choosing a gnome-failsafe session seems to work, but even this is not saved.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This problem showed with every update of the gdm package since the upgrade of my
install from Fedora Core 4 to Fedora Core 5
My normal gnome session
If i remove gdm and reinstall it, all goes well.
I guess something in the rpm is not quite right regarding the configuration files.
When removing the package, the file /etc/gdm/custom.conf is saved as .rpmsave,
and rebuilt from scratch, so I suspect something in the config file upgrade
machinery is going wrong.
We kind of missed the boat on fixing this one I think, closing.
