Description Jan Vesely 2013-01-21 18:54:04 UTC
gdm is configured with --with-initial-vt=7 (gdm-3.6.2.ebuild:174). However, systemd expects display manager on on vt1 (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=817186#c1). Removing --with-initial-vt=7 fixes the issue Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jan Vesely 2013-02-09 16:45:42 UTC
Turns out this was caused by plymouth useflag, after recompile with -plymouth gdm starts ok on vt7 with an automatic switch.
Comment 2 Alexander Tsoy 2013-02-10 12:37:10 UTC
Strange, but if I configure gdm to start on vt1, them I have a lot of permission problems. Gnome asks me for a root password for actions like reboot, doesn't allow me to configure network, etc..

Gnome asks me for a root password for actions like > reboot, doesn't allow me to configure network, etc.. I had this problem too, but I considered it a separate issue. The problem in this bug is that USE=plymouth will prevent the automatic switch to vt7 on startup.

Are you able to reproduce with gdm 3.8?
Comment 5 Jan Vesely 2013-07-27 16:10:37 UTC
(In reply to Pacho Ramos from comment #4) > Are you able to reproduce with gdm 3.8? yes (using systemd init). it also captures keyboard input (vt switch still works). I think it's working as intended, given that gnome expects gdm to start on vt1.
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos 2013-07-27 16:30:53 UTC
This shouldn't occur per: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25749 Please report the problem here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gdm
Comment 7 Pacho Ramos 2013-08-24 13:19:39 UTC
Did you report it?
Comment 8 Jan Vesely 2013-09-10 18:45:56 UTC
(In reply to Pacho Ramos from comment #6) > This shouldn't occur per: > https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25749 I don't think this applies. If I understand correctly that bug is about running plymouth on other VTs than vt1. In this case plymouth runs on VT1, it is gdm that needs to switch the VT and fails to do so. (In reply to Pacho Ramos from comment #7) > Did you report it? reported here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=707876 sorry it took so long. However, I expect the bug to be closed with the same comment as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=817186#c1

You forgot to remove --with-initial-vt=7 \ line 171...It is still enabled. That's been a year I am waiting for this...thanks a lot!
