RE: gdm not operating as xdm did....


Thanks for taking the time.

Yes, I should have mentioned my using RH 6.2 Linux
as an OS.

I guess that I am wondering whether xdm will
play nicely with gdm ?

Starting xdm manually did not seem to work.

Thanks again,

For GDM you normally (at least Red Hat and similars) will have to look
/etc/inittab and /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf. IMO the nodaemon is not
important most of times, but wrong config, non supported feature or

If you are trying indirect queries with XDMCP, it is normal to have
problems: GDM does not support them, only local and direct.

Next time describe you system and what you are exactly doing, so we
can help better.
