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.
Feb 26 14:07:24 xxxxxxx gdm: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Failed to start X server several times in a short time period; disabling
This could happen immediately after disabled cde-login and enable gdm2-login.
$ svcadm enable gdm2-login
