OK... that got me one step closer. I could log in using
su and entering my ldap password. But I couldn't log in
from the graphical login and I couldn't ssh in. So I also
copied password-auth from f12 and that allowed me to
ssh in. Graphical login seems to get past the authorization
step but then drops me back to the login prompt again.
I suspect this is unrelated to authorization and just some
incompatibility with gnome and something in my home
I tried to install KDE to test this theory, but I get this
Error: Package: PackageKit-qt-0.6.3-1.fc13.i686 (fedora)
Requires: PackageKit = 0.6.3-1.fc13
Installed: PackageKit-0.6.4-1.fc13.i686 (@updates-testing)
Available: PackageKit-0.6.3-1.fc13.i686 (fedora)
This looks like my yum repo configuration is in some
inconsistent state. How do I fix that... I want to end up
with a f13 system when f13 is released.
