Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 41865
xdm login screen bad formatting
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:22 EDT
Description of Problem:
Justification is incorrect in the xdm login box. "Login:" is off to the
right and "Password:"
is off to the left. This is on the alpha platform. I just checked on the
x86 platform and it looks fine there. Strange.
Bill, can you have a look into this? I'm Alphaless.. I'll look at the
code though and see if there is anything obvious.
I have isolated the code that displays the prompt. Unfortunately, I
cannot determine from merely looking at the code what is wrong with it
that it would display as you describe. I have no 64 bit hardware with
which to test/see/debug this though, although I bet that it is just a simple
Bill, can you test this on ia64 also and see if it is doing so there as well?
It would be nice to know if it is Alpha specific or 64bit specific. Then I
can send it to Jay Estabrook to look into perhaps.
The code in question after an "rpm -bp XFree86.spec" is located in:
I'll try and check on ia64, but I need to switch video cards first. ;)

I don't see anything wrong with the release candidate..
resolved I think
SO you are saying that you were did not see the formatting issue on a different
Alpha? I admit that I have not have time to check different Alpha's to see if
this a single machine incidence. If you want to see the problem I am talking
about come and see me and I will show you the offending machine.
This is with the current builds I have made
Hmm, tested it on a G200 with same packages and everything looks fine. Chalking
it up to video chipset issue.
