Description of problem:
when running gdmsetup, it is not possibly to specify the number of X servers
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gdmsetup
2. try to specify multiple X servers
Actual Results: can't find configuration option
Expected Results: the ability to specify multiple X servers
this configuration option was there in the graphical gdm setup utility in RedHat
7.x. why remove it?
in general: why have a less powerful graphical setup frontend then the
configuration file allows? this is the exact notion people dislike graphical
"user friendly" applications: it denies access to the possibilities of the system.
of course one can set multiple servers by editing /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf, but
then what use is there to have a graphical setup tool?
This should also be filed on bugzilla.gnome.org (and comments added to each
bug cross-referencing the other bug)
