I think my KDM ConsoleKit patch should be fairly easy to adapt to any
XDM-derived display manager, as KDM is also derived from XDM. The only caveat
is that it includes GPL code derived from GDM, so it will make your display
manager GPLed, and you can't use it if its license isn't GPL-compatible.
(Luckily, the X11 license used in XDM is GPL-compatible.)
Why don't you use libck-connector.so or even simplier pam_ck_connector?
I think you should really maintain it in Fedora. Being upstream,
you're the one
who knows it best, and you also actively use the package. Moreover, you're
I am ready to comaintain the package, and as I already said, even do all
the work of packaging. But a maintainer in fedora should be there to
have the final word.
already an experienced Fedora packager, so your case is different
from the one
of upstream developers only wanting to get their software into Fedora which you
identify as a possible cause of conflicts of interest (but which IMHO isn't
necessarily bad either).
Conflict of interest may arise after the import.
KOffice maybe? Yes, it requires the kdelibs, but it's not
anywhere near as
bloated as OO.o is.
If you can live without a full office suite, AbiWord and Gnumeric are also good
Indeed, it is much less heavy than OO.
By the way, this isn't that wacky a question, people from KDE and
analyzed memory requirements for different setups, and the lightweight WM setup
ended up requiring more memory once they started different apps, because they
all used different libraries or no libraries at all, whereas the full desktop
environments have most of their code shared across applications.
I could have a look, but I doubt a lot that in my use case it is true.
It would mean that
some xterms, some with vi + xpdf + firefox + mutt + fluxbox
consumes more memory than
some gterm + gedit + evince + firefox + evolution (or maybe something
lighter I don't know) + gnome
I can check, but I doubt so much. Do you want that I check, and in that
case do you have an explanation on how to measure the footprints?
