Fedora Merge Review: gdm

Initial Owner: rstrode@redhat.com
Comment 1 Yijun Yuan 2007-02-05 02:44:28 EST
should gdm require "redhat-menus"?

I'm installing XFCE and gdm to a minimal installed system. Yum cannot find
dependency for "/usr/share/desktop-menu-patches/gnome-gdmsetup.desktop", so I
have to specify "redhat-menus" on yum cmdline.
Comment 2 Christian Krause 2009-07-17 15:12:54 EDT
A minor ownership/permission issue is described in bug #487228:

After the first execution of gdm "rpm -V gdm" reports the following changes:

.M....G.    /var/log/gdm
.M......    /var/run/gdm

This should block the merge review.
Comment 4 Thomas Spura 2009-11-06 15:04:00 EST
Some other items, I just found:


- macros in %changelog, %pre in line 2098 and %doc in line 2259
  please use %%pre and %%doc instead

- Prereq: /usr/sbin/useradd is deprecated:
  please use Requires: instead

- 122 Obsoletes: fast-user-switch-applet
  123 Provides:  fast-user-switch-applet = %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}

  Should that not be:
  Obsoletes: fast-user-switch-applet < %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}

Mass reassigning all merge reviews to their component. For more details, see this FESCO ticket:

How to handle this bug is left to the discretion of the package maintainer.
Comment 6 Jan Kurik 2015-07-15 11:26:11 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)
