I have different issues with the Gnome checks.

The remediation I followed set the blank screensaver, timeout, banner, etc. in /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory/ but the SSG tests look for these values in /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults

Agreed, though, that if NO Gnome tools are installed at all, these checks should also pass. I've not seen that false positive, but it doesn't surprise me.

Hey All,

Has there been any previous discussion on the Gnome checks?

We run headless installations here so none of the checks are applicable to us, but the XCCDF raises fails.  I'm not sure if its possible to add a check to see if x sessions are enabled perhaps?
