After being stuck on GDM 3.28 for a long time, here is a patch to update GDM
to 41.3. This brings GDM in line with the most of the other GNOME ports.
- Launching via X11
- Displaying a list of users
- Logging in
WHAT DOES NOT WORK:
- Unlocking the screen. It fails on this error:
gdm 6526 - - GLib-GIO: g_dbus_connection_call_sync_internal: assertion 'object_path != NULL && g_variant_is_object_path (object_path)' failed gdm 6526 - - Gdm: Unable to determine if can activate sessions: gdm 6526 - - GLib: g_error_free: assertion 'error != NULL' failed
This error is triggered by common/gdm-common.c in GDM. On GDM, it accepts a valid password but then goes back to the login screen.
