Log of failing GDM slave
Description of problem:
gdm blows up when responding to interface=org.gnome.DisplayManager.Session method=SavedLanguageNameRead signal during login. The attached trace appears to
show a null pointer deference on the 'settings' variable:
gdm: #6 gdm_session_settings_is_loaded (settings=0x0) at gdm-session-settings.c:246
gdm: #7 0x00000000004086a8 in on_settings_is_loaded_changed (worker=0x144ac40) at gdm-session-worker.c:2114
gdm: #8 0x00000036c940e2ee in g_closure_invoke () from /lib64/libgobject-2.0.so.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.91.93-1
How reproducible: about 70% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system
2. Try to login
Seem especially reproducible if automatic login is enabled but occasionally happens on manual login, as well.
Usually, attempting to log in a second time results in success.
gdm slave crashes with attached backtrace and login process freezes with spinning wait cursor.
Fix is here:
gdm-2.91.93-2.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
Yep. That fixes it for me. Bumping the karma.
Will this negatively affect the autologin for the GNOME 3 test day ISO's being spun tonight?
gdm-2.91.93-2.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
