How do you set this up?

Dan

Comment 4 sangu 2005-05-28 02:31:10 UTC
1. add gdm daemon 
$chkconfig --add gdm-allow-login
$chkconfig --add gdm-early-login
$chkconfig --add zzz-bootup-complete

2. modify kernel command line option in /boot/grub/menu.list 
rhgb -> early-login

%cat /boot/grub/menu.list

[...]

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2005-06-08 16:07:11 UTC
This does not seem to work on my machine with or without SELinux.

If you do a chcon -t gdm_exec_t /usr/bin/gdm-binary

Does it begin to work?


Comment 6 sangu 2005-06-09 16:08:19 UTC
Only after installing selinux-policy-targeted-1.23.18-2, this bug was fixed.

$ls -lZa /usr/bin/gdm-binary
-rwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:xdm_exec_t     /usr/bin/gdm-binary
$ls -lZa /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
-rwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:xsession_exec_t
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
