BSD Linux



X Display Manager. Xhost Phonebook, X Login, X Desktop Chooser, and XDM X server (vnc server).

Easy install, Clean uninstall (and X up when done). Highly compatible, no libs. Like gdm but different in goals and features. Great as primary dm or as a backup dm.

pre-requirements: X Windows. xdm(1) binary (package) if it was removed (xdm is part of traditional X)
