NAME

       sessreg - manage utmpx/wtmpx entries for non-init clients


SYNOPSIS

       sessreg  [-w  wtmpx-file]  [-u  utmpx-file] [-L lastlog-file] [-l line-
       name] [-h host-name] [-s slot-number] [-x Xservers-file] [-t ttys-file]
       [-V] [-a] [-d] user-name


DESCRIPTION

       Sessreg  is  a  simple  program  for  managing  utmpx/wtmpx and lastlog
       entries for xdm sessions.

       This version of sessreg is built using the modern POSIX  pututxline(3c)
       interfaces,  which  no  longer  require  the slot-number, ttys-file, or
       Xservers-file mappings.  For  compatibility  with  older  versions  and
       other  operating  systems,  the  -s, -t, and -x flags are accepted, but
       ignored.


USAGE

       In Xstartup, place a call like:

              sessreg -a -l $DISPLAY -x /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER

       and in Xreset:

              sessreg -d -l $DISPLAY -x /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers $USER


OPTIONS

       -w wtmpx-file
              This   specifies   an   alternate   wtmpx   file,   instead   of
              /var/log/wtmp.  The special name "none" disables writing records
              to the wtmpx file.

       -u utmpx-file
              This   specifies   an   alternate   utmpx   file,   instead   of
              /var/run/utmpx.    The  special  name  "none"  disables  writing
              records to the utmpx file.

       -L lastlog-file
              This  specifies  an   alternate   lastlog   file,   instead   of
              /var/log/lastlog,  if  the platform supports lastlog files.  The
              special name "none" disables  writing  records  to  the  lastlog
              file.

       -l line-name
              This  describes the "line" name of the entry.  For terminal ses-
              sions, this is the final pathname segment of the terminal device
              filename  (e.g.  ttyd0).   For X sessions, it should probably be
              the local display name given to the users session (e.g. :0).  If
              none  is  specified,  the  terminal name will be determined with
              ttyname(3) and stripped of leading components.

       -h host-name
              This is set to indicate that the session was  initiated  from  a
              remote host.  In typical xdm usage, this options is not used.

       -s slot-number
              This  option  is accepted for compatibility, but does nothing in
              this version of sessreg.

       -x Xservers-file
              This option is accepted for compatibility, but does  nothing  in
              this version of sessreg.

       -t ttys-file
              This  option  is accepted for compatibility, but does nothing in
              this version of sessreg.

       -V     This option causes the command to print its version and exit.

       -a     This session should be added to utmpx/wtmpx.

       -d     This session should be deleted from utmpx/wtmpx.  One  of  -a/-d
              must be specified.
