    hi everyone,

    i want to control gdm on rh8. i currently boot into runlevel 3 (which i
    want) and i can start gdm after i login. i want to bypass the gdm login
    manager after i login from the command line. i also want to bypass the gdm
    login manager entirely, so that i go directly to the command line upon
    logging out. the gdm documentation that i found on the web is rather
    scarce. afaik, there isn't a man page for gdm.

    does anyone have any suggestions on how i can learn to control gdm the way
    i want?
