Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446152
gdmflexiserver eventually unable to switch sessions
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:13 EST
Description of problem:
After running gdmflexiserver many times, I eventually get this message:
** (gdmflexiserver:2352): WARNING **: Unable to determine session: Unable to
find session for cookie
** (gdmflexiserver:2352): DEBUG: seat id is not set; can't switch sessions
I also get a dialog that says: "Unable to start new display.\n\nCould not
identify the current session."
I mentioned this in bug 446067. Today, I've been killing what I think are
processes associated with the extra gdm sessions, but I still just ran into this
bug. I asked about some of these things on the gdm mailing list and was told
about a bug report/patch, which I've referenced in the external bugzilla section
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to happen to me eventually; could take 10+ times running gdmflexiserver.
Steps to Reproduce:
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
