GDM2 2.17.6 (unstable)
Posted on: 01/22/2007 10:35 AM

The 2.17.6 release is an unstable release of GDM with the following
new features.

- More verbose error messages from GDM daemon and gdmsetup when custom.config file is missing. Now GDM will not start gdmsetup if the custom.config file is missing, but instead display a pop-up dialog with an error message. (Lucasz Zalewski)

- Remove redundant GenericName from gdmsetup.desktop. (Brian Cameron)

- Fixes so code compiles with c99 compilers. (Jens Granseuer)

- Translation updates (Djihed Afifi, Clytie Siddall)

Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen lt;mkp@mkp.netgt;. Much work has been done on GDM2 by George Lebl, and Brian Cameron 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 ...

No RPM this time around BTW. Have fun. A spec file is included though, so you can try:

rpmbuild -ta gdm-whatever.tar.gz

Have fun,
