i've never tried this, but i'd recommend figuring out if gdm can be run as an xdmcp server.
optionally, you could also run Xvnc within the zone. or you could ssh -X to the zone and remote display your apps. if you're tring to run gdm in the zone to access local hardware (graphics card, keyboard, mouse, etc) that will be a difficult, since X now uses hal (which depends on dbus) to discover hardware. i'm not sure how you could work around this (my X foo is not that strong). ed On Mon, Feb 01, 2010 at 04:54:19PM +0100, Paul van der Zwan wrote: > Is it possible to run GDM inside a zone on b131 ?
