Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 864762
Password refused after screen timeout and in response to sudo command via GUI interface
Last modified: 2013-04-08 17:52:55 EDT
Description of problem:
In testing F18, Initial user created as administrator. I subsequently created a normal user. Therefore I have two logons.
In logging in attempt after a timeout, or in trying to run Software update via GUI interface, (I am in sudo user file along with wheeel (I am also in wheel group), password is refused.
In some cases, after immediate logon after power up, password via GUI is refused the first time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just do it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Let user session lockup due to timeout or try to run software additions
2. Enter correct password (Canadian French Keyboard, no other keyboard in the list. Keyboard mapping has been verified as correct).
Invalid password message (logon message similar to refused GUI password refusal message)
With Beta TC9, (btfrs with F18 (the bug is resolved).
I can lock screen or perform sudo commands. Which I presume that the routine for password checking is functioning as it should.
Now works fine after the software updates following new installation
