Description Ilya Konstantinov 2007-02-10 17:15:27 UTC
kdm should add the XDG_SESSION_COOKIE environment variable, like gdm does.
Otherwise ConsoleKit doesn't work in kdm-initiated sessions, breaking things
like  mounting through HAL (since HAL nowadays validates mount requests through

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

Related to bug #228111 ?

Comment 3 Ilya Konstantinov 2007-04-30 19:37:33 UTC
This is indeed a prerequisite for ConsoleKit to work. You can make it a
dependency of bug #228111.

XDG_SESSION_COOKIE is actually set by my patch in #228111.

+	if (ck_session_cookie != NULL) {
+		env = setEnv ( env, "XDG_SESSION_COOKIE", ck_session_cookie );
+	}

(and WITH_CONSOLE_KIT is currently always defined in dm.h, I haven't bothered 
making it conditional).
