Description nihility 1999-05-12 20:12:45 EDT
i turned browser=1 on in the gdm.conf file...
then tried saving a jpg to the /usr/share/faces
directory.... renamed the file to match the username (root)
for example. When gdm loads it crashes.

Verified in test lab with both .jpg and .png files.  GDM continues to
crash and respawn, and eventually will lock up the system requiring a
hard reset.
Comment 2 nihility 1999-08-11 10:56:59 EDT
any progess?
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-08-28 16:13:59 EDT
For this version, the word from the maintainer is, I am told, just
don't enable that feature.  gdm version 2 should not have this
