.xsession doesn't source profile
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:09:41 EDT
.xsession isn't started from a login shell anymore.
For example LANG isn't set anymore when starting .xsession.
I've worked around this by changing our .xsession file. (#!/bin/bash -i)
It should be. From Xsession:
if [ -x "$HOME/.xsession" ]; then
exec -l $SHELL -c "$SSH_AGENT $DBUS_LAUNCH $HOME/.xsession"
If you can find out what's going on on your system, I'd appreciate it.
That's Xsession from gdm isn't it? This bug is about xorg-x11-xdm which has a
own Xsession file (/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession).
I am not sure about the situation on Fedora 7 in the moment, but on Fedora 8,
they are the same. Could we get an output of
locate Xsession |xargs ls -l
On Fedora 8, it is:
[matej@viklef etc]$ locate Xsession |xargs ls -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2007-12-04 19:14 /etc/gdm/Xsession ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2007-10-08 23:46 /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3375 2007-10-12 21:22 /etc/X11/xinit/Xsession
On Fedora 7:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 2007-12-03 11:42 /etc/gdm/Xsession ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1009 2007-10-02 14:09 /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3278 2007-08-06 19:38 /etc/X11/xinit/Xsession
locate -0 Xsession |xargs -0 rpm -qf

diff between Xsession on F-7 and F-8
Why we don't run $SSH_AGENT in F-7?
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 It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 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.
