Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598123
Login prompt does not appear after screen saver has been invoked
Last modified: 2012-08-16 16:09:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Upgraded to Fedora 13, now the login prompt does not come up after the screen saver was triggered. Worked fine in Fedora 12 x86_64 on same laptop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 13 x86_64 on HP Pavilion
How reproducible: Every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start up laptop
3.Allow screen saver to come on (wait 5 min of inactivity)
4.Touch a key or mouse (touchpad) to trigger login screen to come up.
5.Login prompt screen does not come up. Screen saver halts and shows blank scrren then goes back to screen saver.
Login prompt will appear, and allow user to login.
First stated that this occurs every time is incorrect.
It only happens when I have an additional monitor attached. <99% of the time>
I was on travel and discovered that if there is /no/ additional monitor, the login prompt /does/ come up after the screensaver has been triggered.
Machine type is DELL Precision M6500 with ATI video

I have this same problem ... with only a single monitor. 100% of the time.

Is this with Fedora 13 64 bit or 32 bit ?
What kind of system ? desktop or laptop ?
do a "sudo dmesg" and list out the video specs so they have more info.

Correction. This happens on the DELL only with additional monitor attached.
It happens with the HP pavillion every time, with or without additional monitor, and or when hooked up to KVM.
This also happens on an HP 6715B (RS690M) using the radeon driver. This machine had been setup with a second display but the second display has since been disabled and the configuration removed. This issue occurs when the machine is not in any way connected to a second display.
When the screen has been locked, the screen is blank and touching a key unblanks the screen, shows the fedora desktop background without any login prompt for less than 2 seconds after which the screen goes blank again. The mouse pointer can be moved around the screen but that's about it.
Dropping to a text console gives a login prompt, but just entering a (valid) username at the prompt, without having had the chance to enter any password, immediately produces the message "Login incorrect", the screen is refreshed and the login prompt reappears.
CTRL-ALT-DEL can be entered at the text console which restarts the machine.
I was almost thinking this had something to do with pam modules but my desktop (using nVidia 8800GT) has a nearly identical (fedora 13) setup and never has exhibited this issue.
Upgraded to FC14, the gnome-screensaver in FC14.x86_64 has the same bug.
My upgrade to FC14.x86_64 solved this issue. Besides upgrading I ran:
$ fixfiles relabel
after the upgrade. That's about all I can relate to the solution on my end.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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.
