12The I<flexi server> mechanism allows to run GDM sessions on demand, in a new
13virtual console. The administrator can define multiple server configurations,
14using alternate X servers, or different options, in the B<gdm.conf> file, and
15B<gdmflexiserver> will present you with a menu, where you will be asked to
16choose between those server configurations marked with B<flexible=true>.

18Alternatively, the B<--xnest> option allows you to run a new session in an
19Xnest(1) window.
