I am using Fedora 12. I took some updates from the site and after that I am unable to login.
The machine is booting properly. Its comes till the login prompt. It asks for login id and password. When i enter login id and password and press enter, blank screen appears for 3-4 seconds and again the login screen appears.
I tried by both root and my user. Same scenario is coming for both the user.
From console I am able to login but from the login screen i am unable to get through.
The list of updates taken is attached in the file.
Please help me out in this issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Do you see any suspicious or related messages in /var/log/secure and /var/log/messages from the time when you attempt the login?
Running out of disk space may cause symptoms like this. You'd better check if you have enough free space.
Another possibility is that your X server crashes during the session startup attempt. So check /var/log/Xorg.* too.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
