    I am getting the message
    User's $HOME/.dmrc is being ignored etc etc...
    The users home directories are automounted via nfs
    the user info and authentication is via ldap

    If I manually alter .dmrc in the users home directory on the
    server the client will use the second time they log in
    but not the first ( since a reboot ) it but I can't change
    it from the client

    So if I put Session=kde in .dmrc on the server for user1
    then reboot the client machine and log in as user1 I will
    get that message and a Gnome desktop . If I log out and
    log back in again I don't get the message and I get KDE

    gdm error etc etc

    One of those links was very enlightening

    Maybe you know - Is gdm still 'root' at the point it reads .dmrc
    before the desktop starts - If so the nfs share would have to
    be set as treat remote root as local otherwise it doesn't have
    any rights on the server end


    best wishes

    I don't think so, but I'm not sure.
