I am using Gnome as desktop f rom some time, while not
big fan of gnome. GDM (gnome display manager) is
default manager. When it is changed to new source code,
there is not Graphical option to configure automatic
login with this. I was trying various time to search
automatic login feature (but I am not command line
user or expert, so not like to change configuration).
finally I got a solution for this. to do this you have
to do following steps:
1) Change GDM->KDE
2) change KDE configuration for Automatic login
3) by KDM, change desktop to Gnome (if you want to
1) easy method is to remove gdm with all dependency
$yum remove gdm
while make sure kdm installed on your machine
2) run systemsettings->Advanced->Login Manager
after application opened, go to Convenience (7),
select “Enable Auto-Login”
3) reboot your machine and you will be auto login
with selected user. it will default go to KDE, but
you can use gnome by Logout, select “Session” and
select “Gnome” and afterward you will be automatic
login to gnome session.
there can be various way to do this, but as I like use only
Graphical Interface for most configuration, so I tried this.
ya, kdm package need to install to work this, which will
pull some kde application.
