Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 530041
GDM does not show "Other" to allow one to type in the username
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:23:53 EST
Description of problem:
Not sure where this problem comes from, but GDM right now is not showing me the usual "Other..." in the list of usernames.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide in a next, next, next, finish fashion (default package set and all that)
2. In firstboot, configure the system to authenticate / identify users against ldap
3. The LDAP server, admittedly, is on the other side of a slow link (the link is fast enough but I'm making it slow by running other activities over the same link), and so we also enable caching.
GDM shows no users from LDAP (understandably, since the link is slow and all that), but no "Other..." either.
GDM might show a number of users from LDAP (no worries about that though), but should at least show the "Other..." selection in order to allow the user to type in a username to login.
Typo in the Version-Release number, should have been:
of course ;-)
I believe this is the same as bug #529778. This is a really serious problem (users can't log in).
This is also the same as bug #527920.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
