Thread: gdm[####]: (null): cannot open shared object file: No such file ordirectory

  1. gdm[####]: (null): cannot open shared object file: No such file ordirectory

    I'm stumped by this gdm error/warning message in /var/log/messages. It
    doesn't specify what library is missing. However, I'm able to login to
    the desktop without any problems. I thought if I updated the gdm rpm the
    message would disappear but it did not.

    I've searched many a website and forum without finding a specific answer
    to this problem. The other strange thing I see is that gdm has two
    processes running once I enter the desktop. Maybe this could be the
    cause, I don't know, just a guess. How can I eliminate this second gdm
    process at startup? What could be the thing that is spawning it?

    # ps -ef | grep gdm
    root 2188 1 0 03:28 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
    root 2254 2188 0 03:28 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/gdm-binary -nodaemon
    root 2258 2254 2 03:28 tty7 00:00:08 /usr/bin/Xorg :0 -br -audit
    0 -auth /var/gdm/:0.Xauth vt7

    I found a answer in RedHat Bugzilla.

    Bugzilla Bug 221835: gdm[XXXX]: (null): cannot open shared object
    file: No such file or directory

    that's a harmless warning related to the smart card code. It should
    probably
    only be printed if debugging is enabled though.
