issue with kdm and generic-logos
Last modified: 2009-04-22 18:05:03 EDT
We're running into a problem when using generic-logos instead of fedora-logos,
for example on a KDE-based spin: Since generic-logos does apparently not contain
a kdm theme, the user isn't able to login (unless he has specified automatic
logon). Therefore, KDE-based spins using generic-logos are not really usable
after being installed.
I'll take care of this (eventually). My bad for adding theme stuff only to
fedora-logos, and missing the matching bits in generic-logos.
nobody noticed, until now, curses. :)
The last time I tried, KDM fell back fine without a specific theme. Is there not
a default one?
Just double-checked, kdm crash-n-burn if it's configured theme cannot be found.
(in this case, FedoraWaves).
Fwiw, only problematic parts in fedora-logos is the ksplash theme (that does
include the fedora logo).
longer-term, kdm needs fixing to fail gracefully (and possibly try some
Is this still a generic-logos problem or a KDE issue Rex? I wasn't sure whether to change the component or not based on your comments.
Still a generic-logos issue (I think)... I'll try to work on this to be resolved for f11 at least.
I can't reproduce this with 11.0.0-1. Please reopen if it still fails for you.
