Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439702
gdm is breaks when using pam_namespace
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:40 EST
Description of problem:
gdm-worker-thread goes to 100% cpu, probably when the /tmp directory disappears
on it. (I can hear Nalin screaming in BRNO)...
If you install the xguest package and try it out you will see the behaviour, I
am seeing it on one laptop but not my own.
Can't reproduce this here because xguest won't install on rawhide:
error: %pre(xguest-1.0.6-6.fc9.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping xguest-1.0.6-6.fc9
That is strange. Do you have selinux turned on, on the machine you are
attempting to install it on?
I've tried to install it on two different laptops with rawhide. Turns out both
had selinux disabled. Seems like we should allow the package to install though.
Ok, I've was able to install xguest when I put selinux into permissive mode.
Enforcing mode doesn't allow me to log in to any accounts even from login. In
permissive mode I'm prompted for a password when clicking on the Guest user.
That seems odd.
Can you please give me some hints on how to reproduce this?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
I don't believe this happens any longer.
