    Default install GDM login

    Hey,

    for using GDM as login screen you can install it via apt-get:

    Code:
    apt-get install gdm
    then edit the configuration "/etc/gdm/gdm.conf" and allow the root login:
    Code:
    AllowRoot=true
    otherwise you are not able to login after the next reboot (if you are using the bad root account as your main account).

    After the next reboot gdm starts automatically and can login via the graphical interface. Now you are able to configure your gdm with "gdmsetup"

    Oh, now you did it. Now no one will remember to /etc/init.d/networking start !
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
