mdm: The MDM Display Manager
MDM - The MDM Display Manager
DESCRIPTIONMDM is a replacement for XDM, the X Display Manager. Unlike its competitors (X3DM, KDM, WDM) MDM was written from scratch and does not contain any original XDM / X Consortium code. MDM runs and manages the X servers for both local and remote logins (using XDMCP). See http://www.gnome.org/projects/mdm/ for more details.
mdm is main executable. mdmsetup is a graphical tool for easily changing the most commonly used options.
OPTIONSmdm and thus also mdm accept the following options:
- Do not fork into the background
- No console (local) servers to be run
- Preserve LD_* variables
- Print the MDM version
- Print simple description of accepted options
CONFIGURATIONConfiguration is done either by running mdmsetup or by editting the /etc/X11/mdm/mdm.conf (usually, could also be /etc/mdm/mdm.conf) file. The graphical tool does not support all the options possible so editting the configuration file is sometimes necessary.
AUTHORMDM is being written and maintained by George (Jiri) Lebl <jirka [at] 5z.com> based on the original codebase by Martin K. Peterson <mkp [at] mkp.net>.
