    Question RHEL 6 gdm-restart command


    Hi all. Is there a new command that replaced gdm-restart in RHEL 6? I haven't been able to find one anywhere. Ctrl + Alt + backspace no longer seems to work either. I need a command to restart GDM while connected through an ssh terminal during system builds. Any help would be appreciated.

    Will this restart gdm as well? Or just kill all the running processes for it?
