Cannot Login With Latest Update to GDM
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:26:28 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to log in via GDM.
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.
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.
Same issue here. Have downgraded to log back in.
