There is a problem with $pkgrel and $package():

==> ERROR: pkgrel can not be set inside a package function

Thanks for maintaining!

BTW. There is a sense of using this today (in 2015)? When we have eg. lightdm? Where even simple and lightweight gtk(2/3)-greeter looks good when it is good configured.

I was going to edit below, no edit function? I should clarify, When using gdm-old + gnome-keyring, after version gnome-keyring-3.10, the user to not be able to login. This is likely not a gdm-old issue, therefore stating "gdm-old is broken", per below is incorrect.

gdm-old is broken when using gnome-keyring after version 3.10. Downgrading to gnome-keyring-3.10.0-1 restored gdm-old function on my system. Arch Rollback Machine for gnome-keyring: Related info:

After last update (not sure which package exactly) gdm-old doesn't start any session anymore. Anyone faced this problem?

3ED_0 commented on 2013-06-04 08:37 (UTC)

Thank you for notification, but this already done in release 9.

Please update PKGBUILD to install binaries to /usr/bin instead of /usr/sbin in line with recent changes:

3ED_0 commented on 2013-02-11 12:15 (UTC)

Both versions of service works on kms identically.. For me.

3ED_0 commented on 2012-12-21 21:55 (UTC)

BTW. I don't have KMS, checked only text and framebuffer

3ED_0 commented on 2012-12-21 19:50 (UTC)

Ok, i done little investigation about. There is no need to conflict with tty1 for gdm-old (some bugs in new gdm - forced start on tty1). There is no need to have another service because if all services started playmouth make quit self immediately . Jristz your service doesn't work with this DM, maybe mint devs change something in source code. But maybe this work only for me if you want, please, check, before I upload it:

@3Ed_0 I mean: You remmember that Linux Mint fork gdm 2.20 (this) months ago? my mintdm (in AUR) it he resultant of this fork, If you want, why not give a look to the mdm-plymouth.sceervi, probably this help you to create a plymouth service, but if you going to make it, remmember rename to gdm-old-plymouth.service because plymouth probide a gdm3 compatible gm-plymouth.service now is clear?

3ED_0 commented on 2012-12-21 17:33 (UTC)

@sinister99: fixed (btw. FS#18831 - "true && install=gdm.install" in "package_gdm-old()" is not good idea)

sinister99 commented on 2012-12-21 02:05 (UTC)

gdm.install is not included.

3ED_0 commented on 2012-12-20 00:04 (UTC)

If somebody have problems with new pam files, there is fallback: ---------------------------------------------------------------- * for /etc/pam.d/pam * for /etc/pam.d/gdm-autologin Note: please, put last 30 lines of auth.log and daemon.log on some pastebin for future fixes. ---------------------------------------------------------------- @Jristz: how now?

commented on 2012-12-18 18:59 (UTC)

for the pam and for the plymouth service you can watch my mintdm (for of this package by linuxmint) for a clue about how add the plymouth service

3ED_0 commented on 2012-11-15 09:49 (UTC)

"--enable-systemd" is ignored, pam is modyfied to work with systemd, leave it. But package gdm-old is mark as conflict with gdm. There binary and other files have that same locations and names.. $ loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID show you > [..] > Service=gdm > [..] the same in both services

commented on 2012-11-13 15:24 (UTC)

3ED_0: --enable-systemd option not supported by this version of GDM, probably this mean the need of a brunch of pam rules...not sure for other side: 'install -m644 "${srcdir}/gdm.service" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service"' this make conflict with gdm (extra) sue to same name service

3ED_0 commented on 2012-11-12 10:47 (UTC)

Jristz again: I must check this, but I don't use playmouth (graphic card). Could you find solution, by yourself? Jristz: You say that service must be reenabled after change gdm to gdm-old?

commented on 2012-11-09 19:29 (UTC)

another one: you can provide another service for plymouth compatibility?? plymouth ship gdm-plymouth for gdm in extra, and I think that this not work on gdm-old

commented on 2012-11-07 12:15 (UTC)

I noticed that you renamed gdm-old.service to gdm this make an obligatory conflict for gdm since both use the same gdm.service name

3ED_0 commented on 2012-10-24 09:53 (UTC)

Jristz: how now? I think the pam is correctly set up now.. I'm not pam expert..

commented on 2012-10-17 15:09 (UTC)

my mistake I try to run gdm in place of gdm-old But now I install and run them but networkmanager-applet refuse to start, but the other logins not have this issue 64bit in xfce4 theonly form to run nm-applet is a sudo nm-applet & in terminal

commented on 2012-10-17 02:23 (UTC)

my mistake I try to run gdm in place of gdm-old

3ED_0 commented on 2012-10-16 09:13 (UTC)

"systemctl {enable,start} gdm-old.service" not work? PS. I gave that name, because previously systemd have gdm.service in package..

commented on 2012-10-15 02:10 (UTC)

the ./configure --enable-ipv6 is for ipv6 support for remotelogin (like me) but you can add a systemd service???

3ED_0 commented on 2012-08-31 21:41 (UTC)

Added policykit for gdmsetup: # pkexec gdmsetup to try.. :] Plus some fixes..

3ED_0 commented on 2012-08-02 08:00 (UTC)

Jristz: how it works?

commented on 2012-07-28 22:32 (UTC)

You can add to configure all ipv6-related flags you know if not have ipv6 flags you cannot use ipv6-related thinks If i remmember --enable-ipv6 and other are the flasg you can??

jeff_story commented on 2012-07-24 01:39 (UTC)

I can't build this in 32bit new arch install. Can post errors later when I have access to the laptop in necessary.

3ED_0 commented on 2012-07-17 09:21 (UTC)

cpatrick08: 2.32 != 2.20. GDM has been rewritten since version above 2.20. Higher versions, eg are without themes engine.. You may wish create gdm2 package instead....

cpatrick08 commented on 2012-07-17 04:30 (UTC)

could you update gdm-old to 2.32.2 sha256sum 034d23af0ea18d86e5543e707212d9297ec7d83f221808968af266dbebc0e703

3ED_0 commented on 2010-12-04 02:00 (UTC)
