People logged in through kdm don't show up in utmp


Hi guys,

it's not a big deal, but I was wondering
why the kids when they are on the server
don't show up in utmp... is there a way
to have them show up?

Cheers,
Tink

You might want to read the man page for wtmp for a more thorough explanation. It appears that because the xdm does not use a terminal type device assigned it cannot use the utmp to log the access without creating potential errors. However, it does state that it should use the wtmp. It didn't suggest any work around. I also reviewed the /opt/kde/share/config/kdm files but I didn't locate anything that looked like an alternative.
