Same User cannot login on GNOME 3 on Centos 8 the same time

Post by sherbs » 2020/09/06 18:17:46

I have a fresh Centos 8 install including GNOME Desktop, with added xrdp.

When I have a xrdp session open (works as expeced) I then cannot login anymore directly on the machine using the console. I can enter username password, login seems to be successful, but after a short time (<3s) I get switched back to the login screen.

Login without the xrdp session active (e.g. after logout or reboot) is successful. Auto Logon is disabled.

ssh in parallel to another ssh or a GNOME session always works without any issues.

I did not experience this issue when running on a Centos7 install.

Did Centos 8 add any measures that the same user cannot login twice using GNOME? Any ideas how this can be solved?

When I check the gdm system status (systemctl status gdm) I get a connect and close within < 1s:
Sep 06 19:50:36 host gdm[1434]: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.868536 seconds
Sep 06 19:52:45 host gdm[1434]: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.808754 seconds
