FEDORA-2004-071

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : gdm
Version : 2.4.4.5
Release : 1.2
Summary : The GNOME Display Manager.
Description :
Gdm (the GNOME Display Manager) is a highly configurable
reimplementation of xdm, the X Display Manager. Gdm allows you to log into your system with the X Window System running and supports running several different X sessions on your local machine at the same time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is a bug fix update that resolves these three issues:

Bugzilla #110315 - GDM fails counting of XDMCP maximum sessions This resolves the issue where XDMCP sessions would fail with "Maximum number of open XDMCP sessions reached" due to problems with the MaxSession counter. This issue has been problematic especially for the K12LTSP community.

Bugzilla #113154 - GDM file descriptor leak
Also fixed by the same patch.

Bugzilla #113995 - GDM Japanese translations missing
Patch contributed by Jens Petersen.

Upgrade Notice:
Due to past file format changes, gdm moves your existing gdm.conf and possibly other gdm configuration files to .rpmsave and replaces it with a pristine copy. Normal single desktop users probably do not need to worry about this, but this can be problematic for LTSP or VNC remote desktop users. It is recommended that these users review changes between the two files and reconfigure. The 'gdmsetup' GUI config tool found in System Settings -> Login
Screen may be useful in configuration of gdm.

K12LTSP 4.0.x users may want to read Eric Harrison's note here for automatic post-upgrade configuration.
