Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 253568
alsa and computer control issue
Last modified: 2008-05-19 11:40:49 EDT
Description of problem:
when slim is my display manager, i can't shutdown or reboot computer from gnome
menu (only using slim, what isn't what i need), but logout.
also, alsa doesn't work. i can't use alsamixer etc.
when gdm is my display manager, everything is working.
is there hal/dbus support missing?
i'd like to use slim, because it is very nice display manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create /etc/sysconfig/desktop with "DESKTOPMANAGER=slim"
2. edit /etc/inittab by commenting x:5:respawn:/etc/X11/prefdm -nodaemon
and adding x:5:respawn:/usr/bin/slim
3. reboot your computer or do init 3 and init 5
when i log in into gnome, i can't use shutdown/reboot option, but logout.
sound doesn't work.
i can shutdown/reboot computer using gnome menu.
maybe it's an missing support for eg. hal, dbus...
i've filled bug in their bugzilla:
If this is indeed a PAM issue, then it will require slim version 1.3.0 or later.
1.3.0 will be in FC8, until then I guess you need to use the Slim methods or GDM.
backported PAM support from slim version 1.3.0, please test:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '7'.
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 7'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 7 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. 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. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
