Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 702749
gdm-simple-greeter goes up to 100% CPU after timed login
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:26:38 EST
Description of problem:
Login is not possible on F15 Xfce Spin TC1. After the countdown for the timed login is over, nothing happens and gdm-simple-greater goes up to 100% CPU.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F15 Xfce TC1
2. Wait until the countdown for automatic login has passed
No login but gdm-simple-greater goes up to 100% CPU
gdm should log into Xfce
Canceling the timeout and clicking on "Livesystem User" starts the Xfce session without problems.

I don't think this is the same bug. Mine only happens with timed login and the other bug does not mention that at all
I have switched the Xfce Spin to auto-login and now things are fine for me. Removing F15Blocker-xfce and lowering severity.
Interesting enough, I just noticed that TC1 Xfce *does* start an Xfce session, it just takes ages because gdm-simple-greater is eating up all CPU.
Ok, took TC1 again, updated to 3.0.0-3 and restarted prefdm.service. Timed login now works fine and without the high CPU usage. Thanks a lot Ray!
