Ok, thanks.

When I shutdown my pc by shutdown -h now
it shows some errors text like in a command console
can this screen be skipped or replaced by an image?

thanks.

That's not true.

http://library.gnome.org/admin/gdm/s...ration.html.en

/etc/gdm/custom.conf

Code:
# GDM configuration storage

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=YOURUSERNAME

You might have hit a bug... maybe. GDM in Fedora 11 was buggy, but I figured it would have been fixed in an update by now, then again my bug report never saw a response so...

Try using TimedLogin instead. ;-)

Code:
[daemon]
TimedLoginEnable=true
TimedLogin=YOURUSERNAME
TimedLogin=1
It'll still take like 3 seconds for it to login, for whatever reason it still does a countdown, but it should work consistently at least.

For my situation, AutomaticLogin and TimedLogin not good for me.
finally I edit /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas and seems work fine for me.

<schema>
<key>daemon/AutomaticLoginEnable</key>
<signature>b</signature>
<default>true</default>
</schema>
<schema>
<key>daemon/AutomaticLogin</key>
<signature>s</signature>
<default>user</default>
</schema>

@uativan - your solution appears to have solved the inconsistent working of the previous solution I have been using since Fedora 9 of editing the /etc/gdm/custom.conf file.

Thanks for sharing - I was getting really really mad that automatic login was now only working half the time as I have setup a bunch of kiosk systems that need to auto login.
