By default Fedora liveCD is configured in a way that liveuser is logged in automatically since following lines added to gdm/mdm (a fork of gdm of GNOME2) configuration file


I'd like to turn off autologin and remove those lines. So after booting the liveCD I can see the user selection screen, but clicking liveuser forces immediate login without pausing for password prompt screen - so the user can't select language on liveCD if liveuser has an empty password.

I'd like to keep liveuser passwordless but make gdm/mdm pause on the password screen to let user select language (and DE maybe).

Is there a way to do this?
