Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1978
gdm locks keyboard when run
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
When gdm got started, and took over the main screen the
keyboard locked and the program would not allow me to type
my username/password. Mouse still responded however. I
attempted to switch virtual consoles, but each time I
switched I simply got the gdm window again, forcing me to go
to another computer and telnet to "fix" the problem.
This is mentioned in the redhat-devel-list as well, but I
did not find a bug entry listed for it.
BTW, gdm should be added to the component menu for bugzilla.

probably caused by a tab bug that we've fixed in our current
devel tree. If you can reproduce this with gdm-1.0.0-21 or
later please reopen this bug and provide more information,
like precisely what version of gdm you are using. Thanks.
I am experiencing the same condition. Fresh installation (no kernel
recompile, system reconfiguration, etc.). System boots to gdm and no
regular keyboard activity appears to work. <CTL>-<ALT>-<DEL> still
My gnome-related package versions are as follows:
The PC is a Dell Latitude XPi CD laptop with a P150, 32MB RAM.
Fixed in XFree86-188.8.131.52-45 and initscripts-4.13-1
