may "Bug 240148: gdm prompts me to login in non user logins " effect
The cause is explained on the GNOME Bugzilla.
Quoted from Brian Cameron,
"Note that starting with GDM 2.19, the Browser key must be true for the face
browser to work. Previously GDM allowed the face browser to be on if the theme
specified the face browser and the key was false. This is not longer true, so
perhaps the default configuration in Ubuntu needs some tweaking?
This might be due to a change in the default configuration. Note that the
configutation should have the following entries set:
If IncludeAll=false, then you can specify specific users with the Include key.
Perhaps the problem is the the default Ubuntu configuration isn't correct?"
I suspect the problem is similar with Fedora.
After upgrading to FC8 the problem is visible here too. With FC7 everything was fine. I am using Fedora
infinity GDM theme.
Seeing the same in the latest rawhide. (gdm-2.21.8-1.fc9.x86_64)
The rawhide gdm is a complete rewrite, therefore it is best not to mix F8 bugs
with rawhide bugs. Lets keep this bug on F8.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
