Works with gutsy and hardy alpha 5... Did u put in the horrible hack to
autoload gdm with the following:
/etc/init.d/gdm restart

Try that first from the root login, then put it into an RC startup script.
I've followed the howto from scratch and I don't believe there are any
missing steps... perhaps some permission changes to gdm.... I can't remember
off the top of my head, but don't think I did anything different. But
indeed, haven't tested on Feisty.
