Description Jeroen van Meeuwen 2009-10-21 05:55:38 EDT
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):


How reproducible:

Every time

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.
Actual results:

GDM shows no users from LDAP (understandably, since the link is slow and all that), but no "Other..." either.

Expected results:

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).
Comment 3 Andrew McNabb 2009-10-21 14:59:50 EDT
This is also the same as bug #527920.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 08:56:42 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
