Just wondering, what you consider a "working state".

With the exception of http://bugs.debian.org/586539, gdm works fine
here on kfreebsd-i386. And that bug is very probably no gdm-specific
issue as it happens with kdm as well, see
http://bugs.debian.org/586540 (reported together with 586539).

I don't see any other kfreebsd-specific bug-report on
http://bugs.debian.org/gdm nor do I have any other issues with gdm on

Since we still have to fix the same issue for kdm anyway, I think it's
a bad idea to take #586539 as a reason to remove gdm from kfreebsd.

If we can fix it for kdm, but the fix doesn't fix gdm, too, or can't
be applied to gdm, too, _then_ we can talk about removal, but IMHO not
now. Or we should talk about the removal of kdm, too. But there's no
(KDE-) alternative for that currently.
