View Full Version : [gnome] Problems reverting to GDM 2.10 in Koala

November 3rd, 2009, 02:54 PM

I really like Karmic Koala but hate the new GDM look. I installed the old GDM 2.10 and it installed OK but wont start. I get dropped to text mode on boot with a GDM error about it being unable to contact the Xserver.
If I login and run startx X starts fine.
If I reinstall the new GDM that works fine too.
I have even tried creating a persistent xorg.conf but that doesn't help.
Any ideas ? It has to be something to do with the way GDM 2.10 tries to start.
