Description Brian Cameron 2009-12-15 12:53:18 UTC
ck-history is slow, often causing the GDM login GUI to pause or delay in launching.

See GDM bugzilla bug #594344:


A patch was provided to make GDM cache the output of ck-history, but it seems better to fix this problem in the ConsoleKit layer.  If caching is necessary can it be added to ConsoleKit?

Sounds like a good idea.
Comment 2 william.jon.mccann 2010-06-11 12:57:47 UTC
A pretty simple fix might be to use the --since call from GDM:

Probably with a month or two window.

Brian, can you test to see if that would help your situation?
Comment 3 Brian Cameron 2010-06-11 13:09:09 UTC
Sure, does GDM in head provide a configuration option so you can set the since value to use with ck-history, or is it necessary to hack GDM to add the option?
Comment 4 william.jon.mccann 2010-06-11 14:09:29 UTC
I've added a ~2 month value to master now.
