Description Warren Togami 2004-02-05 00:44:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)

Description of problem:
Fedora Test Update Notification
Name        : gdm
Version     :
Release     : 1.2
Summary     : The GNOME Display Manager.
Description :
Gdm (the GNOME Display Manager) is a highly configurable
reimplementation of xdm, the X Display Manager. Gdm allows you to log
into your system with the X Window System running and supports running
several different X sessions on your local machine at the same time.
Update Information:
This is a bug fix update that resolves these three issues:

Bugzilla #110315 - GDM fails counting of XDMCP maximum sessions
This resolves the issue where XDMCP sessions would fail with 
"Maximum number of open XDMCP sessions reached" due to problems 
with the MaxSession counter.  This problem has been problematic 
especially for the K12LTSP community.  K12LTSP expert
administrators are thus encouraged to thoroughly test this
update in production and report findings to the Bugzilla Tracking 

Bugzilla #113154 - GDM file descriptor leak
Also fixed by the same patch.

Bugzilla #113995 - GDM Japanese translations missing
Patch contributed by Jens Petersen.

Upgrade Note:
Due to past file format changes, gdm moves your existing gdm.conf
and possibly other gdm configuration files to .rpmsave and replaces it
with a pristine copy.  Normal single desktop users probably do not 
need to  worry about this, but this can be problematic for LTSP or 
VNC  remote  desktop users.  It is recommended that these users review
changes between the .rpmsave and pristine config file, and reconfigure.
The 'gdmsetup' GUI config tool found in System Settings -> Login 
Screen may be useful in configuration of gdm.

Report definite findings to this Test Update Tracking report.
If no regressions are confirmed by February 16th, 2004 then this 
update should become final.
