Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen lt;mkp@mkp.netgt;, and has at times been maintained by 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
