[Xmonad] Howtos wanted: Configuring xmonad with display managers

I keep running into people on #xmonad or #haskell who are trying to
configure, eg, gdm to run xmonad. I've never run a display manger, so I
have no clue how to help them. I think it would be great if we had a
page that listed most popular display manger type configurations, and
how to set up xmonad in them.

Is anybody running [xgk]dm with xmonad? If so, how? Please post your
answer here, stating what distro you're running (is anybody running
xmonad on something other than Linux?) and we'll compile the answers and
put them up on the webpage. Or maybe there needs to be an xmonad wiki or

In any case, this seems to be a hurdle that lots of people are hitting,
and I think we should try to make it as easy as possible to run xmonad.
