Description george.b.milner 2006-11-16 15:16:42 EST
Description of problem:
xdm fails to give remote session because /etc/X11/xdm/[Xstartup|Xsetup_0|Xreset]
call /usr/X11R6/bin/sessreg instead of /usr/bin/sessreg
 side note: Xsetup_0 also calls /usr/X11R6/bin/xsetroot instead of /usr/bin/xsetroot

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-xdm-1.0.5-5.fc6     (was also a problem in fc5)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up working xdm host (not kdm or gdm).
2.from a remote machine try X(nest) :1 -query step-1-xdm-host
Actual results:
Login screen blinks and resets after login and password are entered.

Expected results:
After login and password are entered, a session/display manager should follow

Additional info:
Works after editing appropriate changes into /etc/X11/xdm Xstartup, Xreset and
Xconfig_0 files.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
