Description Shawn Smout 2004-06-02 12:19:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
Currently xdm and gdm are both installed by default (i.e., if the user
selects a desktop machine configuration and does not choose to select
individual packages).  Only one is needed, especially since there is
no good way for an ordinary user to change the display manager used. 
Thus one of them (probably xdm) should not be on by default in the X
package group.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora with X, without selecting individual packages.
2.Check the package list; xdm and gdm are both installed.
