Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486234
No login prompt
Last modified: 2009-09-07 21:55:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Unable to logout.
Clicking the "leave" button followed by "Logout" logs me out -- and then immediately logs me back in.
Booting the machine results in an immediate login, with no password prompt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on machine. (or logout)
Logged in with no prompt.
KDM or GDM prompt for username and password.
Are you using kdm or gdm?
Is this reproducible with a fresh/new user (one with an empty ~/.kde directory)?
No idea if it is reproducible with a fresh user -- since I am not prompted with a login option, I am unable to select a different user.
I am using kdm -- at least that is what I set it to, after the preupdate package installed gnome for some reason.
Is this still an issue with the recent updates?
Do you have autologin enabled?
I do not have access to that computer this week (other than ssh) so I cannot say for sure, but I should *not*, as it was not enabled by me, nor was it enabled prior to the upgrade from F8. If you know how to check from the CLI, I am willing to try and check.
When you boot the machine fresh, do you see a login window? (If so, then autologin is not in effect).
Reporter do you have the information requested in the previous comments? If no response in 30 days will close this as INSUFFICIENT_DATA
No, I do not see a prompt -- ever.
Must be autologin then.
Do I need to open a new bug over the fact that I never enabled auto-login, but I am evidently auto-logging in, or can I just continue this one?
autologin requires manual configuration (just like how fedora's live images work).
If you didn't configure it, and you're not booting live media, I have no explanation for what you're seeing.
Closing this as NOTABUG
