> We have a few PC with CentOS 4 installed.
> By default, it runs to runlevel 5, which displays the GDM.
> I'm just wondering, how do I actually make the GDM to start GNOME
> automatically (after a successful login) for all normal user account
> without having to add 'exec gnome-session' in every user's ~/.xinitrc?
> The current scenario is, only successful 'root' logins starts the
> GNOME, while other normal user successful login is presented with the
> minimalist window manager (which is equivalent to 'Default System
> Session' from the GDM menu).
> I'd appreciate if anyone could help me to figure this one out.
> Thanks!
