a) login screen (xdm)
Yes, xdm is pretty ugly by default. I'm trying to hack SLIM to integrate better with openSUSE and XFCE, but PAM support is pretty broken and there are other issues. I'm considering theming XDM but I think this would not be acceptable. What about GDM (it is not depending on GNOME much)?
c) add yast icon into main panel/menu This is not very important. Would be much better to make a YaST menu item.
d) root password If an application says it should be run as root I except a dialogue asking for it, not just a message about it. -- Miro "churchyard" Hrončok JID: email@example.com -- This message contains no viruses, because I do not use Microsoft(R) Windows(R).
