  Description     : Replacement of getty. Written in C, it uses DirectFB without the need of X

(Include the long description here.)

qingy is a replacement of getty. Written in C, it uses DirectFB to
provide a fast, nice GUI without the overhead of the X Windows
System. It allows the user to log in and start the session of his
choice (text console, gnome, kde, wmaker, ...).


- It remembers last user who logged in, with focus on password
- It also rememebers last session each user chose
- Fully themable
- A theme will look the same on all machines, independently of the resolution (*)
- You can select your favourite theme, or a random one every time
- Both text and X sessions are supported
- You can start more that one X session at once
- You can even start X inside a console when X sessions are already running
- PAM support
- Support for screen savers
- Session locking support
- tty specific options support
- Customizable key bindings.

(*) Provided it has ben converted to the structure of qingy 0.6.0 and
higher, which adds the ability to specify the native resolution of the
theme, instead of defaulting to 800x600...
