Anyone know how to configure GDM to NOT display the list of users, but instead just prompt for username and password?
Also, where is gdmlogin and gdmsetup on fedora 11?!?

When I click a user name on the login screen, the other ones disappear but the password prompt never shows up. It stays this way for a few seconds, then comes back to the original state with the list of users.
I want to automate a call to ftp in a shell script. If I type
I am prompted for a username and password. I want to give that username and password as part of the call to ftp. The man page for ftp says I can issue a user command at the ftp prompt -- but I want to login to ftp all in one go. Is that possible? I don't see anything in the flags for ftp.
I install 11.2 64bit and I need to remove the list of users at the login prompt of GDM. I looked though yast2 and there is no configuration section for GDM. Is the an official method for having just a simple prompt for username and password?
I changed my main user's ID from 1000 to 999 and now it no longer shows on the login screen. I expected it not to show, but I also expected the login screen (the default that ships with MATE/Mint 16) to be "smart enough" to show a box where you can manually type in a username if there are no users over 1000 to list.
I'm just trying to configure the primary prompt to contain the last history number and exit code of the previously executed command, seperated by a ':'(with no spaces). I tried assigining variable to PS1, but I only got it to display the exit code of the previously executed command but having problem with the history number.
I just did a fresh network install of F17 onto an eeePC netbook 1000HE. Grub2 is dual booting it with Windows XP.
When the netbook boots to Grub2, I select Fedora (or Windows) and I'm prompted for a username and a password. The only credentials that allow me to proceed are the root creds for the Fedora installation.
I have 2 other F17 installations that do not behave this way.
