Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 862790
gdm first displays a sad face and then displays login screen
Last modified: 2012-10-08 08:22:34 EDT
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):
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?
also seen in gnome 3.6.0 netinstall to HD i386 . Occurs on restart or reboot also
enforcing=0 on the boot line fixes this. Reassigning.
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.
could you test it with the latest policy build.

Actually we might want to have this ON_QA until the fix is pushed to updates. It seems to be here:
