Description Tim Landscheidt 2009-05-24 09:06:22 EDT
Description of problem:

When I have logged in on TTY shells ([Ctrl-Alt-F2] & Co.) and exited normally (via exit), the KDM asks if I want to abort the active sessions.

  I file this bug against kdebase as no kdm component is available, but of course the true cause may be in another service (cf. Additional Information). Please reassign as appropriate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Start computer.
2. Wait for KDM screen.
3. Press [Ctrl-Alt-F2] to switch to TTY.
4. Login (as user or root).
5. Logout ("exit" or [Ctrl-D]).
6. Press [Alt-F1] to switch to KDM screen.
7. Choose reboot or shutdown from menu.

Actual results:

| Restart [Turn Off] Computer

| Abort active sessions:

| Session          Location
| tim: TTY login   vt2

| OK               Cancel

Expected results:

The system should reboot/shutdown without prompting as the session is closed.

Additional info:

/var/log/secure contains the lines:

| May 24 11:13:47 lockfix kdm: :0[2091]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so): /lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
| May 24 11:13:47 lockfix kdm: :0[2091]: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_gnome_keyring.so

for every system start. I do not know how they come into play.

  Sometimes, after pressing [OK], only a blank screen occurs (text mode with cursor blinking). Logging in on a TTY shows that a kdm_greet process is running. HUPping it is sufficient to start the real reboot/shutdown. As this behaviour is random, I cannot reproduce it reliably.
