Bug Fix Advisory gdm bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:1708-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-11-20
Last updated on: 2013-11-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated gdm packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The GNOME Display Manager (GDM) provides the graphical login screen, shown
shortly after boot up, log out, and when user-switching.

These updated gdm packages include numerous bug fixes. Space precludes
documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 Technical Notes for information on the most significant
of these changes:

https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/6.5_Technical_Notes/gdm.html#RHBA-2013-1708

Users of gdm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these
bugs. GDM must be restarted for this update to take effect. Rebooting achieves
this, but changing the runlevel from 5 to 3 and back to 5 also restarts GDM.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
