Question Individual login for XGL??


Hi Guys,

I got FC5 setup with XGL and everything and alls cool. Now i want 2 logins where one will be all the jazzy XGL stuff and the other a plain vanilla performance horse. How do i do this? I had set 0-Standard(vt:0) and 1-XGL(vt:1). But it's taking whichever the 1st option is. Maybe i can switch between these virtual terminals but how. Like say i'm in the XGL user login and i change it to Standard login by pressing something(like switching the virtual terminal). Is it possible?

HELP
Thanks

At the moment I boot into "runlevel 3" ( I edited the file "/etc/inittab" for this) and login as root.

In the directory "/etc/gdm" I have two "custom.conf" files:
- one called "custom.conf.standard" for normal Xorg and
- one called "custom.conf.xgl" for XGL.

Whenever I want to use one or another I copy the corresponding file to "custom.conf" and go to "runlevel 5" by the "init 5" command.

It works, but takes some work...

I could write a litte script that let me choose between the two X-systems and do the rest automatically..

I think the problem is, when you actually get a graphical login-screen your already in normal X-windows or XGL...but maybe someone else knows a solutions?
