this would be an IMO bad work around for problem already described #617371
(bcc:ed to note it there) which we rather should not implement, thus closing.

Sorry :)


Could you just in short hint to the way how to start a Skolelinux network based on GNOME.

With KDE4/KDM:

  o install tjener
  o install workstation
  o logon to workstation as root (which is allowed by policy)
  o logon to GOsa on tjener
  o create first LDAP user
  o after that use the ,,first LDAP user'' to proceed on

Currently with GNOME/GDM:

  o install tjener
  o install workstation
  o no logon as root possible on workstation :-(
  o thus:


        - create local user on workstation
        - logon to workstation
        - logon to GOsa on tjener


        - connect my netbook to the Skolelinux network
        - logon to GOsa on tjener

   o create first LDAP user
   o use first LDAP user to proceed

I either of the described workflows a desired approach? Or is there another way have yet not seen?
