Yes and any other vendor's GDM like the Ubuntu (2.28) or Solaris. I don't know what
the Solaris version is based on. All of thes can use PAM.
But in addition to GDM you will need to look at any screen lock programs, as you
will want to unlock with the smart card too. Do the screen lock programs have the
same pre-PAM detection of smart cards?
