gdm requires a higher OpenGl support than it did in the past. The hardware
I am referring to is reasonably supported (3d accelleration works) by Fedora,
it just isn't good enough for gdm. So the software renderer is used instead,
and that is unusably slow on the cpus typically found on machines with old
video cards. kdm works just fine on these machines.
