Chapter 3. kdm

For the most part, we have assumed a reasonably standard XFree86 4.x installation, which is at this point unconfigured. Using other windowing systems is covered further in the chapter.

  • Setting up kdm for local access (for the super user)

  • Setting up kdm to allow remote querying via XDMCP.

  • Setting up the clients to query the server via XDMCP

    CT======================== NOTE: attention, you will want to mention distro specific issues (e.g. SuSE blocking by default the XDMCP port; there is a README.security in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm on SuSE) CT========================

  • VNC

  • Other non XFree86 Windowing Solutions
