Re: [K12OSN] gnome login errors [solved]

argh! yes, i'm an idiot.

i'm hosting the ldap on fc3, but my acls were locking out read access to users login shells! did a 'getent passwd' and noticed the shells weren't appearing in the list.

thanks for pointing me in the right direction, brad. sometimes you just can't see the wood for the trees. ;-)
