(If you have no clue what gdm is, skip a few paragraphs down first)
The 220.127.116.11 release of GDM2 is a minor release with a few neat
features, translation updates and minor bug fixes.
- gdmflexiserver supports --startnew option so that
gdmflexiserver can be told to not pop-up the dialog
asking if the user wants to start a current session.
With this option it just always starts a new session.
This allows running gdmflexiserver from the
screensaver, where the pop-up can't be interacted
with due to the nature of the screensaver.
- Now gdmflexiserver supports gnome-screensaver if
available, then defaults to xscreensaver.
(William Jon McCann)
- Bug corrected in dwellmouselistener which caused it
to always fail to recognize gestures. (Brian
- Added warning message if gdmgreeter theme supports
face browser but does not have pam-message defined.
- gdmsetup and gdmphotosetup now only map right/left
mouse buttons to button1 when running under GDM.
When running as user, honor user defaults.
- XdmcpFill() failure is now logged as debug, since
this happens when the client disconnects from the
XDMCP server before the session was setup.
- gdmsetup fixed so when user modifies Include/Exclude
list, the automatic/timed dropdown lists are updated
immediately instead of having to stop and restart
gdmsetup to see the users in the list. (Brian
- Correct illegal reference to build directory in
installed .la files. (Stanislav Brabec)
- Removed test that causes needless syslog() message
on Solaris when auditing is turned off. New docs
explaining how to setup autologin on Solaris.
- Translation updates (Gabor Kelemen, Priit Laes, Kjartan

Note: GDM2 was originally written by Martin K. Petersen <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
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
