kdebase: unable to remote login with kdm (LTSP setup)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
after upgrading from fc6 to fc7, I'm unable to login from a remote terminal
initially i thought it was related to bug report 247455
but maybe it's not so. since I've updated the kdelibs package
(that was suggested in that report) which solved that issue.
starting new session locally works when using:
KDE menu --> Switch User --> start new session.
i can't login with "Xnest :7 -query 127.0.0.1" from within root session.
btw. all this was possible before the upgrade to fc7
i'm running "kdm -debug 7" so i can send any helpful log
if you think it's necessary
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kde 3.5.7-9 (updated from fc7 testing)
Steps to Reproduce:
i've installed a fresh fc7 and updated it with latest Testing packages.
and i still can't login remotely
here is wat i get:
"Unknown session exit code 0 (sig 11) from manager process"
$ rpm -q kdelibs kdebase
Have you set in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc:
/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess appropriately? (I simply added 'localhost')
rpm -q kdelibs kdebase
/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess to *
still, just after i press enter (in the password field) the KDM login blinks for
a second and it is back again. (doesn't seems to crash!)
i do get this message (in /var/log/messages)
kdm: "Unknown session exit code 0 (sig 11) from manager process"
on the same hardware a fc6 install works fine (when i plug-in in a different HD)
i am not sure if this is related but, i have eth0 down, eth1 down and wlan0 up
maybe it has some thing to do with the network devices ?
Sure enough, didn't actually try logging in via Xnest.
I had *assumed* all was ok once I saw the login screen. my bad.
