gdm does not display usernames stored in LDAP
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:05 EST
Description of problem:
GDM is not displaying the usernames of people stored in the LDAP database. This
worked in Fedora 7 and 8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot to runlevel 5
The only user listed is "Other"
List of users
The login works just fine, but you must select other, then type in a user name.
The user list is not displayed.
This is by design, since ldap set ups often have thousands or tens of thousands
Once you've logged in as a user, it will be remembered though. Also, as of
the "Other" user is automatically selected.
