Description Chris Ricker 2001-02-09 19:28:47 EST
GDM has an optional browser of user accounts which can log in.  Normally, 
it should be configured so that system accounts (bin, uucp, etc.) don't 
show up in the browser.  As shipped, some but not all system accounts are 
disabled.  I had to at least add pvm, postgres, mysql, and gdm to the 
Excludes line in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf, and there may be others which 
should also be excluded.

gdm-2.0beta2-39

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-02-13 18:34:33 EST
Thanks for letting us know about this. It is fixed in the rawhide package.
Here's the Exclude line in there now (wrapped for sane reading):

Exclude=bin,daemon,adm,lp,sync,shutdown,halt,mail,news,uucp,operator,nobody,
games,gopher,ftp,nscd,mailnull,ident,rpc,rpcuser,xfs,gdm,postgres,apache,
named,mysql,ldap,pvm,squid

I'm re-opening this and transferring it to kdm since in RC2 kdm has the same
problem.  I'm seeing:

apache
gdm
halt
ident
mailnull
named
nscd
postgres
rpc
rpcuser
shutdown
sync
xfs

as well as the real user accounts.

Long-term, you should probably just add a file in /etc that lists system
accounts, and have rpms add to that list as they install, since you're now
getting into multiple packages which need to know that information....

I'm not sure how to configure kdm not to list these users.  It doesn't have a
man page, which is also a bug.

I'm assigning this to Bero so that he knows about it (I don't think he does
since it's currently assigned to Havoc.

Is this a duplicate of bug #23136 now?
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-03-20 10:19:43 EST
Yes.


*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 23136 ***
Comment 7 Chris Ricker 2001-03-20 10:21:23 EST
No.  There's still the other bug, that absolutely no documentation for kdm is
installed.
