GDM 188.8.131.52 is out, and has some nice new features. The 184.108.40.206 ebuild works
when renamed, but the problem is that they've changed the session system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mv gdm-220.127.116.11.ebuild gdm-18.104.22.168.ebuild
2. ebuild gdm-22.214.171.124.ebuild digest
3. emerge gdm-126.96.36.199.ebuild
4. Restart gdm
5. Check session list
Default.desktop, gnome.desktop, and two default sessions. (Corresponding to
Please note that this is not simply a matter of moving files around. GDM
sessions have been shell scripts so far, but now they've become INI-style files
with .desktop extensions. I do not use KDE's KDM, but seeing as the .desktop
files are very KDEish, perhaps they are compatible with KDE's session files.
i know about it, but it is the first release in a development cycle. This won't go in the tree until it reaches maturity.
Thanks. BTW, aren't development cycles denoted in odd numbers? (Linux kernel 2.5 for example)
it varies from project to project. in this case, 2.4.9x denotes the development version for 2.4.3 (i'd expect).
of course i mean 188.8.131.52x denotes dev version of 2.4.3 .. gah ..
gdm like bugbuddy has always had a somewhat off scheme. It isn't completely synced with the 2.3 cycle but tries to follow it.
GDM crashes when I try to configure the system, eg. System/Configure.
There are only options to execute gnome not KDE...
built gdm with the 2.3.3-r3 ebuild from breakmygentoo.net
I'd rather be able to configure gdm altough Im a single user on this machine.
we are not supporting breakmygentoo stuff in any way. Please go elsewhere.
Yes....we have told you people time after time not to bring breakmygentoo bugs to bugs.gentoo.org. You have no place here. Your bug belongs at bugs.breakmygentoo.net. Please get it together and read what we write. We don't write stuff like DO NOT report bugs to bugs.gentoo.org just because it's fun. We write it for reasons such as these.
Sorry, I thought it didn't mather what ebuild I used when the version number matched.
You people.. hmmpf... fosers comment was enough thank you.
Besides, it would be much easier to see if emerge -s gdm actually said
Latest version available: 184.108.40.206
Latest version installed: 220.127.116.11
instead of just /gnome-base/gdm
Then you'd know exactly what packade you installed.
I won't bugreport gnome anymore, ever. bye.
closing this really old stuff
