Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to system
failed to start WM
* Mon Oct 01 2012 Kevin Fenzi <firstname.lastname@example.org> 1.3.2-7
- Add patch to not switch tty's, so systemd-logind works right with startx.
Enjoy your systemd :)
Thanks for reporting. It seems you still take that well, since you're still able to append smileys to your comments. I somehow lost the ability few months ago. Introduction and development of the systemd stuff is quite difficult for everyone. I'll try to discuss the issue with relevant guys and hopefully we'll find a solution that could save CDM from being retired.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
I had to remove the consolekit support and patch cdm to avoid immediate startx terminations.
The reworked solution is currently available for Fedora Rawhide, but I'm going to merge the changes to all currently supported Fedora releases. Anyway ... I don't feel well when releasing such hacked solution. It still may fail in some cases.
Could you please test the patched versions once they become available?
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
