Xdm or Gdm
I was having a look in my services list for things to stop because I don't need them (like bluetooth) and I saw that I had both Gdm and Xdm selected.
From what I understand I should only need Gdm since I only use gnome, but when I untick Xdm I get a message saying the usual 'Are you sure etc'. So I thought that I would ask here before I did anything with it.
I figure worst thing that could happen is that I don't get a graphical login to start with and I would have to simply run Xdm to get back. But since I'm pretty new I may be wrong.
Simply do I need Xdm if I have Gdm and only use gnome?

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm

I found out what it was for.
I remembered that when I did the install I was talking to a friend who is in love with flux and xdm. So I did an install of flux and xdm.
Thats why it was there. So it was installed and never used. I have uninstalled it without issue.
Thanks though DC
