i can confirm this issue.
i was just about to file a bug about this one.
Can we get a fix for F8 for this one?
yup, same for me with F9 (also prevents orca in new gdm from working, that's why
subscribing mclasen), maybe you could change the version to 9? thanks
well, PA seems to start in F9, but orca does not work, though.. maybe a
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '8'.
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 8'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 8 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 to the applicable version. 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.
The process we are following is described here:
This got fixed in F10 as bug 462537 . We could potentially do an F9 update. We just need to change the ownership of the directory. Fixing the issue in F8 would be harder I think.
it did not got fully fixed!
All sounds (that are set) work fine with the exception of the logout sound.
That sound still does not work.
The logout sound not working has nothing to do with gdm or PA.
We simply don't have a hook in gnome-session to initiate an action at logout time.
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
