GDM2 2.14.1 (stable), the "Better Living" Release


(If you have no clue what gdm is, skip a few paragraphs down first)

The 2.14.2 release is a stable release of GDM that fixes a compile
issue causing problems with building 2.14.1 and some other fixes:

- Now include gui/ in the distribution.  It being
  missing was causing the module to fail to compile.  (Brian Cameron)

- Fix to the BROADCAST key in gdmchooser so it should now work.  (Brian
  Cameron, kudos to Tiago Vignatti)

- Further cleanups to Addresses CVE-2006-1057.  (Hans Petter Jansson,
  Ray Strode)

- Path and RootPath now do not contain /usr/bin or /bin more than once.
  (Brian Cameron)

- Translation updates (Takeshi AIHANA, \305\275ygimantas Beru\304\215ka,
  Laurent Dhima, Pema Geyleg, Lukas Novotny)

Note:  GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <mkp mkp net>.
Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron
currently shares maintainership duties with the Queen of England.

Note2:  If installing from the tarball do note that make install
overwrites most of the setup files, all except gdm.conf.  It will
however save backups with the .orig extension first.

Note3:  Note3 has been depracated ...


Online Documentation:

No RPM this time around BTW.  Have fun.  A spec file is included though,
so you can try:

  rpmbuild -ta gdm-whatever.tar.gz

Have fun,
