[K12OSN] KDM



Hi everyone,

When we were on FC6, at the Elem. school, we used KDM and configured the
KDMRC file so that terminals located in K-4 classrooms would login
automatically to accounts made for the particular terminals. Since
switching over to CentOS 5, we noticed that editing the KDMRC file
(located at a different location) and turning it on via the
/etc/sysconfig/desktop file only causes an X on the terminals. (It loads
on the server, meaning KDM is in fact installed)

Some comments in the list suggest that XDMCP needs to be turned on. I
looked at the configuration file and it noted that this is on by default.
Nonetheless, I defined this as true, but it doesn't make a difference.

Some possible noteworthy information:

The KDMRC file doesn't exist at /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc , and the xdm folder
didn't exist under /etc/X11 .

I'm not sure if we are missing a package or if the process may have
changed to turn on KDM in LTSP?

Any help would be appreciated!
