Re: failsafe sessions on login screen?

Hello Ian,

I too have been trying to find the failsafe session in F7 so your info was good to see.

However, I have a custom.conf file and a custom.conf.rpmnew file. The latter was most probably installed when I recently upgraded from F6 to F7.

The custom.conf file has a lot of switches, most commented out, but the custom.conf.rpmnew has nothing but headers, of a sort, after the initial preamble.

Is it possible to get a copy of your F7 custom.conf file so I can compare it with mine because after adding your line to my custom.conf the failsafe session still didn't appear.

Well eventually I found it myself: add the line ShowXtermFailsafeSession=true
to /etc/gdm/custom.conf in the [greeter] section.  Why isn't this in the UI?
