This is a SIMP module

This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform, a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.

If you find any issues, they can be submitted to our JIRA.

Module Description

simp-gdm provides the ability to manage GDM on supported systems.


What gdm affects

gdm installs the GNOME Display Manager and sets sensible defaults.

The module has the ability to configure GDM settings via dconf.


Generally, you only need to use include gdm to get full management.

In the case that you have hidepid=2 set on /proc, you may need to run puppet one additional time to allow the facts to hook into the system fully.
