Replacing SLiM

I was looking into replacing SLiM because of this. I was thinking of CDM, but this topic mentioned even CDM has some systemd related problems. Does anyone know what type of problem could that be? What are safe login-manager options?

Re: Replacing SLiM

Yup, I'm aware of the multiple choices and of the switch in Archbang, but my question was more to the tune of if you didn't regret the decision and if CDM/systemd issues are anything to worry about.

Re: Replacing SLiM

Well I do not regret removing slim or lxdm. Live they really are of no use. Personally I do not use a log in manager merely console prompt and run from there. Not checked lately on Slim development, some users had problems with it.

I'm with Mr Green.  https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Start_X_at_Login 

Seems like over the last year+ all the DM's have had issues at some point and I got tired of switching DM's.  So no regrets and one less thing to break.  As they say 'keep it simple'.
