LTSP Login and Session Handling

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2006-06-09

The current LTSP Login Manager implementation lacks features like language and session selection as well as error feedback to the user.

Goal of this spec is to determine the best solution to address the above. Recently ssh session support was added to GDM, this spec should determine if the GDM implemenation is safe to use for us and if a switch to GDM would address the above problems.
If this is not the case and its decided to keep LDM, an implementation plan for the listed features in LDM must be made.
