GDMFLEXISERVER(8)              Debian GNU/Linux              GDMFLEXISERVER(8)



NAME
       gdmflexiserver - start a GDM session using the GDM flexible server
       mechanism, or in Xnest

SYNOPSIS
       gdmflexiserver GNOME options  gdmflexiserver options

DESCRIPTION
       The flexi server mechanism allows to run GDM sessions on demand, in a
       new virtual console. The administrator can define multiple server con-
       figurations, using alternate X servers, or different options, in the
       gdm.conf file, and gdmflexiserver will present you with a menu, where
       you will be asked to choose between those server configurations marked
       with flexible=true.

       Alternatively, the --xnest option allows you to run a new session in an
       Xnest(1) window.

OPTIONS
       In addition to the common Gtk and GNOME options, gdmflexiserver accepts
       the following options:

       -c command, --command=command
