Debian Sarge Dist-Upgrade to Etch... now NO GDMSETUP to be found.

After doing a dist-upgrade from Debian Sarge to Etch (Testing), suddenly my GDMSETUP is gone. Nowhere to be found.. Not on the menus in Gnome, not available in shell. My gdm.conf is reset to the default #info and all category sections are blank.

First how can I install gdmsetup back into my system?

Second? Did I do something wrong or disable it, any one have a clue what may have happened?

Ok, trip out, I cannot figure out how to start gdmsetup anymore from with in gnome or a shell, but did find that at the login screen under "actions" is now "Configure the login Window" it asks for root password. I was able to set up what I need there... XDMCP is now just called Remote.

Any further insight would still be welcome.

apt-get install gdm

You might have to get it from sid
