The fonts :
in the gdm.conf file I added "-dpi 100" to the X-session. When I don't, the fonts in the greeter are unreadable. When I do, the fonts in matchbox (and other WMs) are bigger.
You could try to remove all "-dpi 100" from /etc/gdm/gdm.conf. There is also a "gdm.conf.orig" in the same dir, backup gdm.conf, replace it with the orig-one, run gdmsetup and try again.

In xfce4.4 I solved this by putting my user-font to 8 pixels and qtconfig to 8 pixels (which is unreadable in the default setup, but quite nice with the gdm-setup).

Anyone else interested in helping to optimize this, please send me a PM ?

Yes... now it is working for me also... it was really bzip2 which was missing, as you said Chero.

Here is the full (hopefully) dependency list:
libbonobo, libgnomeui, libbonoboui, libgnome, (lib)gnome-keyring, gnome-vfs, bzip2, libglade, libgsf, libiconv, librsvg, orbit2


Still there are some problems which means just some tweaking I think.

Here is a picture of my first-time-gdm-on-Zaurus:

you selected the gnome theme with chooser - that one doesn't work yet - select another greeter and you'll be ok.

Ok, I got it working now with both matchbox & xfce4. My avatar was chosen for a reason  
The problem with the matchbox.desktop was it shouldn't be calling fbpanel-session, but rather startx. With startx it restarts the x server and the orientation and fonts size are fine. I've replaced the inittab and now it's being loaded automatically.

To get to the console, I made a simple script
Code: [Select]
killall gdm-binary and setup a kill-gdm.desktop file that calls the script. This ugly hack will tide me over until Chero figures out the proper way to get to the console.

Chero:
I've been using gdm for a while now without problems, one question though ->
How do you get it to remember which session was used last time?

I have to chose the session each time, as the default session seems to be gnome which of course fails..

TIA

It should ask you to save the session you choose as the default one, or to leave the current default as it is. At least, that's how it works for me.

I created a new ipk (with all deps) and will upload it asap, but right now I'm testing some other rom, so please be patient.

Hmm, it's not doing that. I'll have to poke around & see if I can figure out it's not doing that.

The ipk is ready. But I'm still having some problems with some apps. An X-session that is compatible with gdm as well as pdaX should be created by someone who knows a lot about x-session-options.
I just got back from a camping trip, so give me a few days.

Cheers Chero.... hope you had a nice time on your trip, bar your car woes ;-)
I'm happy to test this if you need some more input with the ipk, just let me know.

Just a bump, wondering if there has been any progress on this?

I am still trying ot get xfce4 working properly, but once I have that sorted then I think I would like to give this a try!
My new toy: C1000/pdaXrom/xfce4 and Rox - now I just have to get it all working!.

Other stuff: Axim x50v and a brace of Newtons....!

I haven't tried GDM yet but I like the idea of a GUI login screen for pdaXrom.  Good work so far Chero!

A couple of thoughts/ideas:

1. To get to the text console you should just be able to switch virtual terminals, e.g. execute "chvt 1".  To get back to X use Fn-rightarrow.

(However I just tested his on beta1 and when I tried to switch back to X it just hung and when I ssh'd into my Zaurus and ran "chvt 1" it caused X to crash but the screen contents didn't change until I ran "startx" again.  I assume this is a bug in TinyX.)

2. My personal opinion is that starting the display manager from inittab is ugly and hard to manage.  I prefer the method I first saw in Debian where the DM is just started from a normal init script.  This makes it way easier to start and stop the DM and you don't have to edit inittab or muck around with runlevels just to disable X on boot.

Just my 2c.
