XDM (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 /etc/init.d/xdm init script, which via the /etc/conf.d/xdm configuration file is used to start other display managers, such as GNOME's gdm.

install

# emerge xdm


configure

xdm is controlled by /etc/conf.d/xdm.

xdm is often paired with other, more modern display managers. see:

init

# rc-update add xdm
# rc
