Fedora Merge Review: xorg-x11-xdm

Initial Owner: sandmann@redhat.com
Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2008-01-11 13:34:35 EST
I think that almost many of the files in /etc/X11/xdm/ should be
%config and even %config(noreplace).

Having the pam files %config and not %config(noreplace) seems a
bit dubious to me.

It seems to me that xdm lacks proper integration in fedora for 2 
things, it doesn't use consolekit or /usr/share/xsessions. To 
help with that, I created little package that add:
    * Support for a session chooser using xsessions/*.desktop files
    * ConsoleKit session

I think that it should be nice to use it in some way in fedora.

Created attachment 291409 [details]
spec file patch with cleanups

remove old cruft, keep timestamps, version obsoletes and provides.

%{_datadir}/X11/app-defaults/Chooser is not to be edited by the 
user,and hopefully  there is a place where user customization
should go.
Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2008-03-23 12:14:09 EDT
xdm-1.1.7 is out, please update and also please consider my
patch above.
Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2008-04-06 06:35:37 EDT
It would be nice to have consolekit support in F-9. I am using what I describe
above for some moonths now, and I think it would be nice to have it in fedora. I
can submit it for inclusion or you can add it in the xdm package, but please
move on.
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-10-01 12:38:00 EDT
Its simple cleanup so directly done in git. Fixed in xorg-x11-xdm-1.1.6-21.fc15

Remember Ajax don't want to remove Provides: so I have kept them and he will be updating this package to latest upstream soon.
