Description Rui Miguel Seabra 2003-07-07 13:33:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
I have no real statistics but I'd bet most people using gdm are using it on
personal computers, not targeted (by default) at exporting X to other users.

That way, gdm should not launch X allowing it to listen to tcp connections.

This has a very simple fix and has been corrected in GDM (cvs.gnome.org) but
correction has not yet been integrated into RedHat's gdm.

More details at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87291

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all versions untill current cvs (in gnome.org)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
default settings for run level 5

Actual Results:  tcp port 6000 is on LISTEN status

Expected Results:  tcp port 6000 NOT on LISTEN status
