XDM ([[Wikipedia:XDM_(display_manager)|Wikipedia page]],) also known as the X Display Manager, is an application that typically starts at system startup, and presents a graphical login screen. Once a user successfully logs in, their X session begins.
+
 
+
On Gentoo systems, XDM installs the {{f|/etc/init.d/xdm}} init script, which via the {{f|/etc/conf.d/xdm}} configuration file is used to start other display managers, such as GNOME's {{c|gdm}}.

+
==install==
+
{{note|make sure your x11 is working properly before attempting to use xdm}}
+
{{console|body=###i## emerge xdm}}
+
 
+
==configure==
+
xdm is controlled by {{f|/etc/conf.d/xdm}}.
+
 
+
xdm is often paired with other, more modern display managers.
