Re: gdm enabling Xorg to listening on tcp

You have a mechanism to turn off the use of the Xorg command line

listening" turned off by default and if you wish to enable it, you need
to add the command line option "-listen tcp". How does one enable
listening on tcp withing the configuration framework of GDM? May I
suggest adding "AllowTCP=true" to the [security] section of the gdm
custom configuration file? Or is there another method of configuring
gdm so that when it starts the Xorg server it passed along "-listen
tcp" as one of the command line options?
So GDM automatically figures out whether to add -nolisten tcp or
-listen tcp depending on what X server is installed when GDM is built.



You probably just need to make sure you have your xserver devel
package installed at
GDM build time.
