Description Kamil Páral 2012-10-03 14:36:08 UTC
Description of problem:
If I install F18 Beta TC1 (any architecture) from PXE, and reboot, the gdm first displays a sad face and Log Out button. After 5 seconds, it transitions to a standard login screen and I can login. I don't see any other "problems" related with that. But it is a bit confusing, and on slower machines you can see the sad face even longer, probably.

I haven't tried to press Log Out button before the user list screen kicks in.

I have seen this on two different machines, both installed over PXE. If I install using Live image, I don't see any sad face, gdm works just fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-3.6.0-1.fc18.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F18 Beta TC1 over PXE
2. boot into gdm
3. see sad face for a while, then user list

F18 NTH, maybe?

Comment 6 satellitgo 2012-10-03 15:17:07 UTC
also seen in gnome 3.6.0 netinstall to HD i386 . Occurs on restart or reboot also

Comment 7 Kamil Páral 2012-10-03 15:45:13 UTC
enforcing=0 on the boot line fixes this. Reassigning.

Comment 8 Kamil Páral 2012-10-03 15:52:41 UTC
selinux-policy-3.11.1-25.fc18

Comment 9 Kamil Páral 2012-10-04 11:41:58 UTC
I have tracked the problem down to gnome-settings-daemon. gnome-settings-daemon-3.6.0-1 is fine, but gnome-settings-daemon-3.6.0-4 (which also pulls gnome-settings-daemon-updates) causes this bug.

I have no idea whether this is a g-s-d bug or selinux bug.

Comment 10 Miroslav Grepl 2012-10-04 12:03:01 UTC
Kamil,
could you test it with the latest policy build.

-30.fc18

Doesn't seem to help.

Comment 12 Miroslav Grepl 2012-10-04 17:43:54 UTC
I apologize, 
try to with the latest build. Thank you.

Comment 13 Kamil Páral 2012-10-04 20:44:02 UTC
-32 fixes it

Comment 14 Kamil Páral 2012-10-08 12:22:34 UTC
Actually we might want to have this ON_QA until the fix is pushed to updates. It seems to be here:
