Fedora 18 screen blinks 4 or 5x no GDM after update
After the update to kernel 3.7.7 the screen blinks 4 or 5 times and never reaches GDM. Xorg finishes without errors.
I' ve noticed this in the gdm-slave log:
gdm-simple-slave: WARNING: Failed to give slave programs access to the display. Trying to proceed.
gdm-launch-environment]: pam_unix(gdm-launch-environment:session): session opened for user gdm by (uid=0)
gdm-launch-environment]: pam_unix(gdm-launcQuote:h-environment:session): session closed for user gdm
gdm-simple-slave: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_ref: assertion `object->ref_count > 0' failed
gdm-simple-slave: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_unref: assertion `object->ref_count > 0' failed
and this in the messages;
dbus-daemon: dbus: [system] Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.4" (uid=0 pid=823 comm="/usr/sbin/gdm-binary ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" member="GetAll" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.56" (uid=0 pid=1618 comm="/usr/libexec/gdm-simple-slave --display-id /org/gn")
Seems a permission problem because of "pam_unix".
authconfig --updateall spits out python errors... ahhh misery
did you by chance install a different version of Python that is in the fedora 18 base or update repo
using a mismatched python can cause errors
Also did you by chance turn on the "rawhide" repo ?
rawhide is the NEXT version of fedora ( right now the ALPHA testing fedora 19 )
if this outputs the listing ( from the root text only login )
and please post that list
it should have the fedora base ( std) repo
the update repo
and maybe rpmfusion and fusion update
( the adobe repo is not needed )
It is possible that the fedora 18 repos are a bit out of sync
try the update again
if you are using the propitiatory ATI/AMD or NVIDIA drivers ( from the ati or nvidia websites )
then you need to reinstall them after EVERY kernel update .
Thanks John VV, it's definitely not the repo.
yum update; No Packages marked for Update
Yesterday, after the update, authconfig worked again, so python is OK.
Here the output of it:
Perhaps you could compare it with yours?
After reinstalling almost every part of the problem still couldn't get a "normal" gdm.
So finally a complete new installation of Fedora 18 solved my problem.:D
Funny though that now i also get the lock-slide-screen that i didn't get before!
