This article applies to BoKS Manager 6.7.0, 6.7.1 and 7.0.0.


The Gnome Display Manager gdm has been upgraded in RHEL 7.2 and this has caused BoKS login to stop working. The symptoms are immediate return to the login page when entering or clicking a user name, as well as a core dump from gdm-session-worker.

Resolution / Workaround

There is no permanent solution available for this issue (as of May, 2016). However the issue can be worked around by appending the following line to $BOKS_etc/bokspam.conf:

gdm-password XDM:${RHOST}->${HOST}, login, login_info, xlogin, log_logout, timeout, sid_xprompt=3:4, log_name=gdm
