       GDM - The GNOME Display Manager

       gdm [options]
       gdm-binary [options]
       gdmsetup [options]

       GDM  is	a  replacement for XDM, the X Display Manager. Unlike its com-
       petitors (X3DM, KDM, WDM) GDM was written from  scratch	and  does  not
       contain any original XDM / X Consortium code.  GDM runs and manages the
       X servers  for  both  local  and	 remote	 logins	 (using	 XDMCP).   See
       http://www.gnome.org/projects/gdm/ for more details.

       gdm  is just a script that runs the actual gdm-binary executable.  gdm-
       stop is a script that stops the	current	 running  daemon  immediately,
       gdm-restart  restarts  the  current  daemon  immediately	 and gdm-safe-
       restart restarts the current daemon  after  everyone  has  logged  out.
       gdmsetup is a graphical tool for easily changing the most commonly used

       For full documentation see the GNOME help browser  under	 the  GNOME  /
       System section.

       gdm and thus also gdm-binary accept the following options:

	      Do not fork into the background

	      No console (local) servers to be run

	      Preserve LD_* variables

	      Print the GDM version

       --help Print simple description of accepted options

       gdmsetup accepts all standard GNOME options.

       Configuration  is  done	either	by running gdmsetup or by editting the
       /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf (usually, could also be /etc/gdm/gdm.conf)	 file.
       The  graphical  tool does not support all the options possible so edit-
       ting the configuration file is sometimes necessary.

       GDM  is	being  written	and   maintained   by	George	 (Jiri)	  Lebl
       <jirka@5z.com>  based  on  the  original codebase by Martin K. Peterson
