Replacement for gdm in Fedora 9?


In Fedora 6,7 and 8 I could use gdm to set the computer to log into my user name without intervention. This was a great feature and used it on both of my servers so that if there was a power outage, the computer can reboot when the power was restored. What do I use in Fedora 9? I can't find it anywhere.

why are you running a gui on a server? and you don't need to be logged in for the server to function correctly

I also use the servers for other functions (xastir as a gateway) and do truly need to have these load up the user.

My server is multi-functional. It acts as our File Server AND it is the IGate for APRS in Las Cruces, NM. It also is our weather server. For the latter 2 items to work I DO have to be logged in. Also, if I am using samba so that a family member that will not load linux can use the server, then I do have to be logged in, which I am doing.

So, back to the original post, In Fedora 6,7 and 8 I could use gdm to set the computer to log into my user name without intervention. This was a great feature and used it on both of my servers so that if there was a power outage, the computer can reboot when the power was restored. What do I use in Fedora 9? I can't find it anywhere.
