If you have no clue what GDM is, refer to the documentation links
at the bottom of this announcement.
The 2.19.5 release is an unstable release of the GNOME Display Manager
(GDM) program with the following bug fixes and improvements:
- Fix for CVE-2007-3381, a denial of service attack where the
user can crash the GDM daemon with a carefuly crafted
GDM sockets command and cause GDM to stop managing future
displays. GDM now is much better about safegarding against
NULL values returned from g_strsplit calls. Credit given
to "JLANTHEA". (Brian Cameron)
- Fix range check for custom commands. (Lukasz Zalewski)
- Fix string translation issues for bug #460407.
- Fix issues with icons not showing up properly in the
gdmgreeter menu. (Michael Terry)
- Fix memory handling of the dialog which asks if you want
to restart the greeter in a different language. (Takao
- Autodetect the path to the nologin binary to fix GDM so it
works on FreeBSD where nologin is in a different location.
Also fix compile issues for FreeBSD. (Lo\357c Minier)
- Fix some build issues and code cleanup. (Brian Cameron)
- Translation updates (Subhransu Behera, Runa Bhattacharjee,
I. Felix, Theppitak Karoonboonyanan, Gabor Kelemen, Priit
Laes, Ankit Patel, Changwoo Ryu, Ilkka Tuohela)
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
now 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 ...
