Description of problem: when clicking the xfce4 panel widget to initiate the
logout dialog, clicking 'restart' does not issue a reboot but instead sends the
user either back to gdm at runlevel 5 or back to the console at runlevel 3 (from
where the startx command was issued)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login via gdm or console + startx
2. immediately or shortly after, click panel widget that opens the logout dialog
3. click the 'restart' button
user is returned to gdm or console and must issue the _actual_ reboot/restart
command from there.
let me know if there's any additional hardware/software data that I can supply.
Sorry for the delay here... ;(
Is there anything in your ~/.xsession about this issue?
Is selinux enabled? Any AVC messages in /var/log/audit/audit.log ?
Any news? This might be a duplicate of:
Can you provide the info requested in comment #1?
and also, if you can provide the info requested in the above bug in comment #6
that would be great.
no nothing in particular from .xsession, and as well SELinux is running in
... or was, anyway.. the power supply died on that box just recently so I've
been living on the laptop for a while (which uses gnome, not xfce). I can
create another account on this and test with it perhaps. but this is the reason
for my own delay. among other RL(tm) issues :)
I'll look into the other bug and get back to you once I get the time to play
with it on the laptop and confirm the details.. (I'd do it now but am at work)
ok. I sure understand delays.
Just let me know when you have a chance to look at it again.
Scott, anything new to this bug?
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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.
This bug has been in 'needinfo' state for months without a reaction from the reporter, so just for the record I change the solution to INSUFFICIENT_DATA now.
