Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450217
NIS users no longer show up in list
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:22 EST
Description of problem:
After migrating to F9 from F8, gdm no longer displays a list of users to choose
from. You have to pick "Other" and then type in your user name and password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 9.
2. Do not create any local users.
3. Use NIS for user authentication.
No users show up in the gdm user list.
I expect the user list to show up like it did in F8.
According to the NewGdm page: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/NewGdm
"the user list will hopefully become a bit smarter and only show local users and
users who have logged in recently (which should fix problems that people have
with the user list on large installations with thousands of users)"
I would be happy if it did that (remembered who recently logged in and then
added them to the user list).
It's supposed to, but isn't for some reason.
