Setting up GDM

What we are going to do first is sync portage and the overlays to make sure that we have the latest GDM available to us.

emerge --sync && layman -s sabayon

Then emerge gdm by doing

emerge -va gdm

Then backup your gdm.conf and your custom.conf by doing this:

cp /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf.bak
cp /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf.bak

Then browse to /etc/conf.d/xdm and change:

File: /etc/conf.d/xdm
DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"
to
File: /etc/conf.d/xdm
DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"

Also as a precaution check /etc/rc.conf and make sure that it says something like this:

File: /etc/rc.conf
DISPLAYMANAGER has moved to /etc/conf.d/xdm

Configuring GDM

Now we move into the actual phase of configuring it to use XGL.

  • Run gdmsetup
  • Select the Security tab
  • Click the Configure X Server button found at the bottom right of the tab

We will first delete all available entry's for the X server. Don't call me crazy. They'll be replaced.

  • Click on the Standard Server that appears in the "Servers to Start" list.
  • Click on the remove button. Goodbye X.

Now we replace that with a new X server.

  • Click the Add/Modify button.
  • Set the new server to use VT:1 for nVidia users or VT:0 for ATI users.
  • Do not add any thing else. Click ok when done.
  • Name the server Xgl.
  • In the command line add this:
    /usr/bin/Xgl -br -ac -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv
    for nVidia users or
    /usr/bin/Xgl :0 -ac -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv:pbuffer
    for ATI users.
