Description BeGe 2008-07-21 15:40:27 UTC
Description of problem:
KDM prompt back the login window each time i entered a valid user password
whatever the desktop (gnome, kde) manager i choose

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE 4.0.99-3

How reproducible:

It is systematic on my FC10

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Starts fedora FC10
2.Enter user password in the login windows
3.Then the login window is displayed again

Actual results:
Cannot start KDE with KDM. I succeed to bypass by using xinit in command line
and then type in /bin/sh /usr/bin/startkde

Expected results:

Additional info:
My FC10 is running on vmware.
I add not this problem with with the preceding update of KDE.

Comment 1 BeGe 2008-07-21 15:43:51 UTC
In addition, i forgot to mention that the login window does not show the list of
users that are declared in the login manager configurator. No user is listed. I
am not sure it is linked with the login problem.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-07-21 16:05:33 UTC
rpm -q kdebase-workspace

4.0.99-3 ?

> I add not this problem with with the preceding update of KDE.

which version was that?

Comment 3 BeGe 2008-07-21 20:24:25 UTC
rpm -q kdebase-workspace 
Preceding version was:

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-07-25 15:48:40 UTC
fwiw, I can't reproduce this (on f9).

Comment 5 BeGe 2008-07-25 20:07:04 UTC
I think that my problem is coming form somewhere else. When starting in line
mode i can only connect to root not to any other userid.
When under root is try to 'su userid' i got:
su: /bin/bsh permission denied
or when doing 'su - userid' i got:
su: warning: cannot change directory to /home/userid: permission denied
su: /bin/bsh permission denied
eventhough my access right to home seems correct. I think one lib has got wrong
access wrights but i do not find which one. I will digg into this but anyhelp of
debugging will be appreciate.

Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2008-07-25 20:13:22 UTC
Is /bin/bsh a typo for /bin/bash?

Comment 7 BeGe 2008-07-26 07:06:59 UTC
Yes it is a typo. I should have written /bin/bash.
I am more and more convince that the problem is not linked with KDE. I have
decided to reinstall my Fedora and most probably the problem will have
dissapear. I suggest you close my issue.
