  file.  (Brian Cameron)

  ShowGnomeXtermSession configuration values to not work.  (Brian

  press when using real GTK+ buttons in the theme.  (Brian Cameron)

- Now per-display configuration works with the greeter/SystemMenu and
  greeter/ChooserButton keys.  (Brian Cameron)

- Corrected a problem with GDM not using the fallback directory when
  it cannot access the user's $HOME directory.  (Arjan Timmerman)

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,
