Description Valdis Kletnieks 2007-11-10 23:29:10 EST
Description of problem:
The default login screen in the new GDM doesn't have a button or other way for a
user to select an alternate/custome/failsafe session.  This really hurts if you
have a userid that previously had a non-Gnome customized session launched via
.xsession (which worked just fine until this weekend).  The Gnome 'session' tool
doesn't help any - it allows customizing a Gnome session, but if you want to
select KDE or a customized session, it's clueless.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.21.2-0.2007.11.09.1.fc9
