Interesting. Tell me what is the best way to enable XDMCP in gdm via a
configuration script? I'll give ya a hint Enable=false is often defined
in multiple places within gdm.conf and the line numbers for these
statements have and will change.
Configuration files that require either a) manual editing or b) complex
error prone scripting are _NOT_ "Good".
But why is the gdm conf file such crap ? Is this because gdm writers had
not lots of advanced configuration file libs at their disposition ?
It's because they consider :
1. the conf file is none of the user business
2. as a result little thought went in key naming
3. and even worse the keys themselves are not stable from release to
How is elektra going to help with this ?
