Description Jeld The Dark Elf 2002-04-04 12:15:39 UTC
gdk-pixbuf merge will start Xvfb to connect but will fail due to 
authentication problems if merged under X session from a su in a terminal.
To correct the problem -ac flag needs to be passed to the Xvfb to disable

OK kids, we need some info here.  First off, please make sure that any packages
which have files in /etc/pam.d are up to date: emerge gentoolkit, then do this:

qpkg -f /etc/pam.d

that will give you a list of things which use this.  Go ahead and remerge
things, unless any of those have been remerged in the last few days.  Don't
forget to run etc-update so that your config files are updated as well.  There
have been some major PAM changes and this has been the cause.

BTW, gdk-pixbuf..-r8 built, but I ran emerge --update world from
the text console without X.

My feeling is that the solution was floating around on the gentoo-user/dev
mailing lists.  One should check whether DISPLAY is set, if yes use
it.  If not (i.e., build is running from the console, use Xvfb).

My 2 cents...

Um, the Xvfb solution has been in use since the -r7 ebuild :P

This problem seems to be disappearing, so I am closing this bug.
Comment 8 Stefan Boresch 2002-04-11 02:17:20 UTC
Yeah, I know: This is what breaks things for me.  When you compile
from within X, i.e., when you already have a valid $DISPLAY, then you
can start Xvfb, but you can't connect to it.  That was in my
orginal bug report.  BTW, this affects evolution and some others as well.
r8 installed, but I happened to install (emerge) from a pure text console in
this case.

As I said, there was a patch/suggestion floating around on 
gentoo-users/gentoo-dev which basically did the following:

If "valid $DISPLAY" emake
else "do Mandrake magic"

I didn't try it, but is sounded reasonably since I never had this
problem with any of the pri -r7 ebuilds -- I usually build from an

Well, actually in console you should have experienced those errors as well. 
Nevertheless, make sure your PAM configs are up to date. Since you have just
emerged the new xfree, make sure to overwrite the /etc/pam.d/xdm file with the
new one and do the same for kdm.  The issue was one of xauth in the PAM modules
being handled badly by the previous configuration.
