[selinux] gdm fails to start and can't login after running by hand
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:39:17 EST
Description of problem:
With a fresh rawhide install gdm doesn't come up at startup.
Starting it by hand, it doesn't go into the background and it is
not possible to login from it. Setting selinux to Permissive seems
to work around the problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide
2. boot and wait for gdm
3. run gdm by hand
2. doesn't appear but see TUI system config in rhgb before it might appear.
3. runs but can't login
2. gdm to appear without Permissive mode
3. logins to work
We need to see the selinux AVCs if you think it's an selinux thing. Check
/var/log/audit/ for them.
Fixed for some days already now in rawhide - dunno what the problem was.
