I have tried a package done by a member of the PCLinuxOS community, in 2
machines and I meet with a different problem in each machine.
In one machine it works, day after day, in the other one it has started
crashing after a few sessions. The login failed, I could not get X to start.
So I used the ncurse drakedm to switch back to GDM.
This was on Sept 7th last time, and having done many tests, trying to
remaster a small spin of PCLinuxOS with Lxdm, and failing, I stopped for a
I just pasted the log here:
The one machine where it works is an IBM Thinkpad T60 (dual-core) with GC
using the driver intel i915 (Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS)
The one machine where it crashed is a Nec M160 (celeron 1.46 Ghz) with it
seems the same GC, using intel i915. I would also meet with another problem
in it if it worked.
PCLinuxOS for now uses usermod version 0.102. I have seen a 0.107 available
and asked for an update, but it has not been answered yet.
I notice each time I try to start a program which requires root priviledges
and relies on usermod-consolehelper, instead of being prompted a window for
the root password I get directly a message stating I entered the wrong
password : but I was not even prompted for one !
When I change the command, and use direct command from a root console, or if
I change the Exec line in the destkop file to use the direct command, then I
get a window prompting for the root password, and the program works fine
after. Example: draklive-install triggers this error message stating that I
provided a wrong password, before I had a chance to provide one...
Thanks for any followings : should I report either or at the bug tracker ?
Does someone want to examin the src rpm which has been used to make the
package I installed ?
