I almost have a working configuration that allows rhgb to use the gdm
xserver.  This
means that once X starts ( even earlier than with rhgb now ) it is a
seamless X transition
all the way to login.  I also have it doing cool things like instead
of bouncing back to
a VT for manual fsck it all happens right there in the rhgb vte screen.

It isn't perfect yet but I am trying to get it usable enough to make
it into Fedora 8 feature set.

ok but feature freeze  is in 4 days... will it be ready by then?
