Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 435820
LDAP + xdm login failure: No profile for user 'user' found
Last modified: 2014-06-02 09:20:12 EDT
After an RHEL5 system has been configured to log users in against an LDAP
server, and the LDAP based user is successfully able to log in at the console,
an attempt is made to log into X using gdm.
The attempt fails immediately, and the following message is logged to
localuser:minfrin being added to access control list
No profile for user 'minfrin' found
There is no clear indication as to which program is logging this message, or
even if this message is relevant.
The user directory is empty - it has just been created from scratch.
Lots of digging uncovers this IRC log:
It mentions that a package called "sabayon" might somehow be involved.
Sabayon is installed on the machine, but rpm -qi doesn't reveal anything
specific about what sabayon does.
Sabayon has an entry in /etc/pam.d, which links to /etc/pam.d/config-auth. The
only entry in config-auth to do with LDAP is the "auth" section in pam. I
suspect that system-config-authentication isn't setting the
/etc/pam.d/config-auth file correctly, need to dig further.
