Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5

Version     : 2.14.1

Summary     : The GNOME Display Manager.
Description :
Gdm (the GNOME Display Manager) is a highly configurable

several different X sessions on your local machine at the same time.

Update Information:

(Notes taken from upstream release mail)

- The sockets connection between the slaves and the GDM
daemon is now
 better managed to better ensure that sockets are never left
 (Brian Cameron)

- Corrected bug that causes a core dump when you click on
 fields that have an id.  (Brian Cameron)

- Add new GdmXserverTimeout configuration setting so that
the length of
 time GDM waits for the Xserver to start can be tuned, so

 works with Xservers that require more than 10 seconds to start.

- The happygnome and happygnome-list gdmgreeter themes now
use the
 official logo.  (Brian Cameron)

- Now GDM configure supports --with-sysconfsubdir so that GDM's

- Now Xsession script uses "$@" instead of "$1" so it is
possible to
 pass arguments with the command to run.  (Brian Cameron)

 authentication to fail when auditing is turned on.  (Brian
