Some users would like to use gdm login manager instead of the default cde login manager(dtlogin).
However, gdm fails to start on SPARC T-series server and the users probably get the following error.

This could happen immediately after disabled cde-login and enable gdm2-login.
$ svcadm enable gdm2-login
