Description David Le Sage 2011-03-09 01:23:47 EST
Description of problem:
I just ran yum update to grab today's patches.  After I installed the new version of gdm (2.91.93-1.fc15) I could no longer log into GNOME or KDE as a regular user or as root.  

Each time I input my user name and password the screen would pause for a moment and then refresh, asking me to input my user name again.  I could not go into either graphical desktop environment at all.

yum downgrade gdm temporarily resolved the problem and allows me to log in once more.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm 2.91.93-1.fc15

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to log in via GDM.

Actual results:
Cannot log in at all.  GDM simply refreshes and ask for user name and password once more.  yum downgrade back to gdm-2.91.6-8.fc15.x86_64
 fixes the problem, so it is definitely an issue with the GDM update.

Expected results:
Should log straight into the desktop environment.

Echo that. I booted to runlevel 3, logged in as regular user and was able to successfully "startx" but Gnome 3 was disabled so I was sent to fallback mode.
Comment 2 Simon Dwyer 2011-03-09 07:43:45 EST
Same issue here.  Have downgraded to log back in.
